Abstract

As an undergraduate senior in the College of Visual and Performing Arts at Winthrop University, my creative project and senior thesis is focused on designing and creating a collegiate football team for the university and the surrounding community. My goal is to provide an opportunity for population growth within the university and to offer high school students in the surrounding areas the chance to play at the collegiate level. This project will provide the university with a team they can support, including faculty, students, alumni, and the general public. I believe that creating a collegiate football team at Winthrop University will have a positive impact on the school and the city of Rock Hill. With new expansions and buildings being lifted in the city, this project will support the growth and expansion of the area. As football is a popular sport among high schools in York County, having a collegiate team to support will foster a sense of community and school spirit. This project will create an environment for Winthrop students that supports the sport of football and will bring people together from all backgrounds and identities to share in the joy of this sport. Through this project, I hope to create a lasting legacy at Winthrop University and in the city of Rock Hill, leaving a positive impact on the community for years to come.
