Among the chaos that is New Orleans days before Super Bowl XLVII could be found Dan Beckler sporting the black and gold of Wichita State, iPad in hand as he caught parts of the Shockers' men's basketball game against Indiana State on Tuesday.
"I absolutely loved going to Wichita State. Definitely spread the Shocker pride," Beckler said. "Was disappointed we lost. We'll bounce back."
Beckler graduated from WSU in 2009 with a master's in sport management, where he also spent time in the athletic department working in media relations for basketball and baseball.
Now he finds himself in the Big Easy with his current employer, the San Francisco 49ers of the National Football League, where he serves as the team's coordinator of public relations.
