Wonder Kid Mark Orr
Mark Orr, Saint Mary's Director of Athletics and Recreational Sports, is the subject of a story on the ESPN Web site. The second in a series of stories on the young coaches and administrators in the Division I athletic world, the article notes that:
Colleges are looking for youth in their front offices, too. Meet 30-year-old Mark Orr, who became the youngest athletic director in Division I sports when Saint Mary's College promoted him in March.
Orr is quoted as saying that what makes him the right fit at Saint Mary's is an undying love of college sports and an overwhelming desire to lead athletes to a successful post-college existence.
