The Furman Future program kicked off in January 2020 and is built to prepare Furman Football players to build towards their next play. Furman Football is fortunate to have a vibrant alumni group- the Furman Football Player’s Association (FFPA)- which has been instrumental in supporting student-athletes as they go through the program. Programming has included workshops built specifically for athletes on topics like resume building, LinkedIn profiles, professional outreach, career exploration, and interview preparation. NextPlay has also provided one-on-one support for student-athletes seeking additional help.

“I think this NextPlay opportunity is something great. I hope it gets spread to basketball players, volleyball players, softball players… I think this NextPlay [program] is going to be awesome. It’s going to be fun to see it grow from here, and I’d like to see where it goes in the future.”
