Challenging the status quo isn’t for everyone. Katie Steinberg will be sitting down with the innovators turning the sports and hospitality worlds upside down, only on Game Changers.

On the first episode of Game Changers, host Katie Steinberg sits down with Brandon Pfluger, Senior Director of Business Development and former soccer athlete at Southern Methodist University, to talk shop on one of the most important decisions of his life: does he go pro with his soccer expertise, or does he hone a different set of skills?Katie and Brandon talk what the sport meant to him while being a student, his ultimate decision to go to law school rather than getting an MBA and how that impacted his current career, and how he’s stayed in touch with SMU post-graduation. Beyond that, the two discuss SMU’s Life After Ball program, and how it’s helping athletes prepare for a career after college ball.
