  • Is Anything Good Happening in High School Sports?

    by Brian M. Miller December 2016

    Is there anything good happening in high school sports? As an athletic director, this is a question for which I try to have a good answer. Frequently, the reported news is not helpful. I am an advocate for education-based athletics. The court, field or ice rink is an extension of the classroom. This is the test track to see whether or not what we teach within our school walls has an impact in the reality of the world outside.

  • Billy Langenstein Discusses U.S. Bank Stadium Launch

    by Paul Steinbach October 2016

    Billy Langenstein got his start in the event-management game as a 15-year-old water boy at music venues in Philadelphia. He later spent five seasons with the Washington Nationals, ascending to director of event operations. Today, at age 28, he's SMG's director of events services for U.S. Bank Stadium, the newly minted home of the Minnesota Vikings. The stadium will host more than 400 events a year — from weddings to concerts to college baseball games — all under a clear plastic roof and Langenstein's watch. On Vikings gamedays, he's ultimately responsible for everything from transportation and emergency response to the actions of thousands of security and guest-services personnel. AB senior editor Paul Steinbach caught up with Langenstein the morning after the Vikings had played their second home preseason game in four days.
