Mark Reeves’ first official day as TSSAA executive director was July 1, and the longtime employee of the state association took over during a critical time period.
The state’s Board of Control was just weeks away from voting on classification.
The debate of whether or not high school athletes should have NIL rights raged on.
And an ongoing officials shortage lingered about Tennessee.
Not exactly an easy transition.
So we at 5Star Preps reached out to Reeves to not only learn about him and how he got into this role, but how he’s handling the intensity of it all and all the pressing matters that threaten high school athletics.
Enjoy this Q&A with Reeves, and we hope that it’s both informative and thought-provoking.
And, we hope that it helps you get to know the TSSAA executive director a little better.
