Lizzy Farrell- Lizzy was a Huskies marketing intern in 2016 and worked as the Corporate/Group Sales & Game Day Operations Manager until 2019. Her time with the Huskies gave her a great background in game presentation and sports marketing as well as meeting some great people. “My favorite part about working with the Huskies was everyone I got to meet along the way. My fellow interns, the players, the front office staff, the host families, and of course the fans.” She is currently the Game Day Presentation Coordinator at the Ralph Engelstad Arena in Grand Forks, North Dakota where she creates game day plans for men’s hockey, men’s and women’s basketball, and women’s volleyball.
David Bergren- David was an intern for the Huskies in 2017. Working as an intern for the Huskies was one of his favorite memories of his time in Duluth. “The people are great, and the internship program was a launching point for my future career in the NBA.” He now works for the Minnesota Timberwolves as one of the Premium Sales Managers of their premium sales team. His experience as a Huskie intern taught him the skills that are needed to be successful in the sports industry. “ Working for the Huskies was like gaining a second family and summer nights at the ballpark aren’t too bad either.”
Jake Glickenhaus- Jake interned with the Huskies during the 2019 season as the Head Clubhouse Manager intern. His time with the Huskies was full of memorable experiences, such as working concessions for a little league tournament and staying late chatting with the other interns after games. His favorite part of interning with the Huskies was all the connections and lifelong friendships made with the owners and gaining all the experience and knowledge that the internship allowed. The internship allowed Jake to live out his dream of working in sports. He now is working with UMD Women’s Hockey as their equipment manager.
Ben Hall- The highlight of Ben’s three summers with the Huskies was getting to be the mascot, Harley D. Huskie, as he “…never thought I would have as much fun as I did being a mascot”. Another memorable experience he had as an intern was bobblehead nights, as the stadium was packed. The Huskies was Ben’s first job in sports, and the experience while interning solidified his passion for working in sports and led him to his current position as a grounds crew assistant for the University of Arkansas. Ben stated as to why someone should want to work for the Huskies that “Because nowhere else can you work for Mike and Greg. They do a great job at making it a fun experience, while also allowing interns to have important roles, and learn up close how sports teams operate. I learned valuable lessons about working in sports and life in general. I also met many great people, between players, coaches, fans, and co-workers.”
