CLAIRE BURKE | CAROLINA PANTHERS, EXECUTIVE ADMINISTRATOR TO THE GM/FOOTBALL OPERATIONS
Did you play sports growing up?
I played soccer and field hockey growing up. I started playing soccer when I was about five and played all throughout college. I walked onto the Wofford soccer team the spring season of my freshman year and played through my junior year. I played field hockey starting in sixth grade and played through my senior year. I was named all-state and played in a National Tournament in West Palm Beach Florida my junior year of high school.
What is a lesson you learned playing sports that you still apply in life today?
In high school, I received the opportunity to be a captain on both the soccer and field hockey teams. I learned that having the captain’s band came with a lot of responsibility.
