April 11, 2018

Chris Iacoi - UCLA

Favorite CABMA memory?

It's hard to pick just one. Serving on the Executive Committee provided a great opportunity to meet so many amazing people in this profession and helped me give back to the organization.

Last book you read (title & author)?
Leonardo da Vinci by Walter Isaacson

Favorite Movie?
Beautiful Girls

Instagram or Twitter?

Most memorable sporting event attended?
2004 MLB ALCS Game 4 - Yankees v. Red Sox. A Kevin Millar walk, Dave Roberts stolen base, and a Bill Mueller single off of Mariano Rivera, and the rest was history!

Favorite Quote?
"It pays to want to be wealthy and great but never look down on those who look up to you and never forget where you came from."- Muhammad Ali

What is one of the greatest aspects of being involved in athletics?
Watching the development and growth of young men and women from the time they enter college as freshmen until their graduation. I've been fortunate to work at institutions that value all aspects of the student-athlete experience and put the students' well-being at the forefront of all decisions.

Best piece of professional advice you've received?
Work hard, work smart, work together, be consistent, and have fun
