Bernard Muir, an Alachua County Club alumnus and the director of athletics at Stanford University, said he enrolled in the club when he was 7 years old. He said his parents knew he needed something to keep him occupied after school.
Muir became involved with various sports teams.
“The football, basketball and baseball teams provided a great foundation for me,” he said.
As a club member, he used to sell drinks at the University of Florida football games, which peaked his interest in sports. He also learned about leadership and the importance of setting goals.
“I owe a lot to where I am because of the club,” Muir said.
