"MY STORY AND PHILOSOPHY”
Syracuse University Head Football Coach Dino Babers
Thursday, June 13 – 11:00 a.m. – 12:00 p.m.
Mulroy Civic Center at Oncenter – Crouse Hinds Theater
*Open to all attendees
Coach Dino Babers led the Orange through an outstanding season, restoring Syracuse University’s standing as a forceful NCAA presence, with the team ending the season ranked #15 in the nation and claiming the Camping World Bowl trophy. The lessons he has learned about teamwork and his mastery of the football field apply to the challenges and opportunities that await the fire chief. Coach Babers will help welcome attendees to Syracuse, the new home of NYSAFC’s conference, and relay his own story of the transformation of another Syracuse tradition – SU football. Coach Babers will discuss his background in coaching – where he came from and his inspiration on the field. He’ll also talk about the culture of his program, his coaching “philosophy,” and lessons learned that apply to leaders in all fields, including the fire service.

Special thanks to program sponsor, VFIS.
