Keith Davidson, Director of Athletics at the University of Maryland Eastern Shore

Back in the 1950s, college athletes began filing for workers compensation and benefits because they were not only being injured on the playing field, but some were even dying. 

Most college programs were scared of the idea of players being treated like state employees at the time.

On this episode of UMES 30, host Dr. Joshua K. Wright discusses the current state of college sports with Keith Davidson, Direrctor of Athletics at the University of Maryland Eastern Shore, and two student athletes from UMES.
