Woods worked in the marketing department at the Reading Railer’s, a role he secured thanks to Travis Berger who highly recommended the former standout Alvernia basketball player. Once in the organization, he soon assumed a leadership role learned quickly what it takes to run a marketing department for a minor league sports team.
He devoted most of his senior year to advertising, publicity and developing the Railer’s brand. “That’s where I was really able to come into my own as a business man,” explains Woods. “Initially, I wasn’t too keen on giving presentations. But I received the right tools through this opportunity and my Alvernia education. Today, I can confidently say that presentations are my strongest asset.”
