Education in the classroom and on the gridiron has fueled success for Stevan Savich ’80 as a bank examiner and certified trust auditor at the Federal Reserve Bank of Chicago, he said.

“Being able to participate in college sports is something that will help you for the rest of your life, but earning your degree allows you to live your life,” the Savich told the NCAA for a story in its After the Game series on former student-athletes. “My job responsibilities have allowed me to travel the world and work with both small community and large global banks. My experience as an athlete prepared me for the bank boardroom, since playing sports gives you confidence to perform in front of a crowd.”

Savich earned his bachelor’s degree in Economics from UIndy, then known as Indiana Central University, after a student-athlete career that included playing on the Hall of Fame 1975 football team.
