Great Lakes Analytics in Sports Conference

Rocco Porreca

Assistant Professor of Sport Management | Newbury College

Sports Analytics 101

For a brief moment in time, Billy Beane changed the course of the sports world. Though many may not admit to it, he changed the way people think about sports. Despite the resistance toward change, analyzing player performance through statistics is the way of the future. This presentation will examine how Moneyball thinking can be applied to leaders in any sport.

Rocco Porreca received his EdD in Sport Management with an emphasis in Sport Coaching and a specialization in Sport Marketing from the United States Sports Academy in 2016. He currently teaches as a part-time lecturer in the School of Education and Human Development at the University of Miami, and as an adjunct professor within the College of Business and Management at Lynn University.
