David A. King returned to his alma mater in 2005, and oversees the 17 intercollegiate sports programs at EMU, providing overall leadership, advocacy and strategic planning.

“Athletics is the avenue through which many young people develop themselves to their fullest potential,” King said. “My passion has always been to see personal growth and development of lifetime skills in players, coaches and community through the athletic experience.

Dave’s book, “Overplayed: A Parent’s Guide to Sanity in the World of Youth Sports,” discusses the growing concerns related to youth sports, including specialization and the increasing time demands placed on kids.
