“College Football – America’s Most Evolutionary Sport – 150 Years of Change"
“College Football – America’s Most Evolutionary Sport – 150 Years of Change"

At an early age, Kent Stephens became interested in sports largely through the success of two local teams: The Cincinnati Reds, who won the National League pennant in 1961, and the Cincinnati Bearcats, who went to five consecutive Final Fours, winning the National Championship in 1961 and 1962. Growing up, he was always interested in reading about sports history and American history, the two subjects he truly excelled in as a student.

Kent attended the University of Cincinnati, and received a BFA in Broadcasting from UC. Upon graduation, he held a position at a local television station where he produced and directed broadcasts of local high school sporting events.

In the summer of 1988, Kent assisted with the management of a summer collegiate baseball team. This experience led him to enroll in the Sports Management program at The Ohio State University. He stood out as the only person in the class who could link aspects of sports to pop culture, economics, racial issues, gender issues, politics, etc. So much so, his professors asked him to change his major to sports history.

While at OSU, Kent pursued an internship at the College Football Hall of Fame, located just 20 miles north of Cincinnati. After graduation, he was hired at the Hall as the director of the Traveling Hall during football season and the assistant historian and curator the rest of the year. In 1995, the museum moved to South Bend and Stephens relocated to Indiana to remain the historian and curator.

The South Bend museum closed at the end of 2012, and Kent and his family moved from northern Indiana to Atlanta to continue his career as the museum’s historian and curator of the new Chick-fil-A College Football Hall of Fame.

Increased Parking Costs are Now in effect for the Loudermilk Center Garage
Parking Cost Increase:  As you know, the parking increase for both those with parking cards and those that do daily tickets, was to increase Oct 1.  
There was a delay in preparing the system and it just went into effect Dec 16.   Be prepared for this when you leave on January 7th.  Parking Cards will cost $39 per quarter and parking tickets will be $4 per luncheon visit.  Keep in mind, that while this seems like a steep increase, we have not had a parking charge increase in the 20 years we have been having our luncheons here at the Loudermilk Center.
Are You a Legacy Member?
We are wanting to identify all members of our club who are Legacy Members!  Are you?
KCA Communications and Bulletins - We Want to Talk to You!
Are you having trouble receiving the KCA Bulletins and other email communications?  It appears that computer systems/servers who use Symantec are having trouble getting communications from our ClubRunner system delivered to their inboxes.  While we work on this issue with ClubRunner, I have an email list serve set up through Outlook to send the bulletins out each week to those who need it.  And if you are  having trouble receiving your quarterly bills, I can send them to you through QuickBooks.  Just email me at and I will add you to the list!
Member Networking - Have a Spotlight Shine on You!
Do you want to let the members of our club know more about you and your business?  Do you want to network and cultivate more business contacts?  If you answered yes, then you need to sign up to do a "Member Spotlight" at one of our club meetings!
We Need YOU to be a part of the "Lunch Bunch"!
Our club is looking for folks who are willing to become part of the "Lunch Bunch" team!  Team members will help the lunch meetings operate smoothly by working the a/v board and sounds system in the back, ensuring that any a/v the speakers use are properly set up, and working the microphones during the Q&A sessions!
While no technical experience is necessary, volunteers should feel comfortable and confident adjusting sound levels and setting up the computer for power point and video presentations.  And the benefit is a dedicated comfy seat at the a/v table during lunch!  wink
Please contact Karen at to sign up!
