GOLDEN GATE XPRESS -- While Jackson garnered national attention for SF State’s athletic program out on the field, senior Broadcast and Electronic Communication Arts major Ashley Keehn sat on top of the Gators’ dugout, swinging her camera around to catch the action that would later be televised.

“After the game we had to move pretty quick to get everything done,” Keehn said. “I went up to our room and got the clip edited before we posted it online. ESPN told me to send them the link when we got in touch so I sent it over. We saw that it was on TV before we even got an email back.”

Keehn interns for SF State’s Sports Information Department under sports information director Joe Danahey as part of the BECA program. She is responsible for streaming Gator sporting events on BECA’s website and SF State’s athletics page. Her contribution of the clip to ESPN helped SF State’s athletic program gain well-deserved national prominence, according to Danahey.
