    Saluki Athletics Director of Group Sales and Special Events John Goode was one of 13 FCS administrators who were selected by the FCS Athletic Directors Association (FCS ADA) to attend the 2014 National Association of Collegiate Directors of Athletics (NACDA) Convention in Orlando, Florida last week via the Borden Perlman Insurance Professional Development Grants.

    The grants, which cover registration fees and travel expenses for the convention, are awarded to senior level FCS administrators who meet the requirements.

    "On behalf of the FCS ADA, I'd like to congratulate the 2014 Borden Perlman Grant recipients," said FCS ADA President Brian Hutchinson, who is also the director of athletics at Morehead State. "I also want to thank Borden Perlman for its continued support in engaging and advancing our members educational and professional development opportunities through the FCS ADA grant."

    Goode is a 2011 graduate of SIU and has been the director of group sales and special events since March of 2013. He was a first-team All-Missouri Valley Conference fullback on the Saluki football team.
