About Me

I’m Griffin Clark, a freshman at Boston College interested in sports communications and law. I’m currently gaining experience in sports public relations as a Communications Game Day Associate for the New England Patriots.

I discovered my passion for sports communications as a Kid Reporter for Sports Illustrated Kids in middle school. During high school, I gained reporting, marketing, and media relations experience with Providence College Athletics and Naismith Awards. In the summer of 2022, I attended the leading high school journalism program in the nation, the Medill-Northwestern Journalism Institute.
