Roughly 80 Northport High School’s sports marketing students were welcomed to New York Jets Sports Business Day at MetLife stadium on Nov. 14. 

Every year, the New York Jets invite more than 100 schools located within the Tri-State area for tours of the stadium. Along the way, students heard from front office members of the Jets organization, including head of finance, marketing and sales.

Christopher Goodwin, one of the school’s business teachers, said that the tours provided his students with a better understanding and appreciation of how a professional sports team operates. 

Assistant Principal Denise Keenan said, “It was really an incredible experience.”
