NASHVILLE-Members of the local Future Business Leaders of America (FBLA) chapter recently traveled here to LP Field to participate in the Titans’ Learning Lab and had the opportunity to learn about the business aspects of the Titans’ organization.

The event started with an introductory address from Don MacLachlan (Executive Vice President of Administration and Facilities) and Mike Keith (Director of Broadcasting), and after their address, members spent time at different stations learning about different areas in the Tennessee Titans’ organization.

Attendees were addressed by several people in the Titans’ management, including Stuart Spears (Vice President of Business Operations and Sales) and Bill Wainwright (Director of Suite Sales and Services).

They also got to tour the Titans’ Locker Room, where the game jerseys of Chris Johnson, Rob Bironas, Jake Locker, and Matt Hasselbeck were hanging up or everyone to take pictures.

FBLA members also attended the football game between the Tennessee Titans and Jacksonville Jaguars, where the Titans won by a score of 38-20.

History was made as the Titans became the first team to have two punt returns for touchdowns (both by Darius Reynaud) and two interceptions returned for touchdowns (both by Zach Brown) in the same game. It was the last game of the regular season as the Titans finished 6-10 on the season.
