Student Spotlight: Stephen Glancy

If you have ever seen a guy running around in an inflatable eyeball suit during a Lakewood BlueClaws game, it was probably Stephen Glancy. Glancy is not only the quickest eyeball ever seen; he is also an extremely motivated individual who hopes to work in the front office of a professional sports team one day.

Glancy iProfile Pictures the son of Cindy and Steve Glancy, and brother to Caty, a junior in high school. He was raised Baptist, which helps guide how he lives his life. Glancy was born in Spartanburg, South Carolina and lived there for about a year. Glancy says he got his laid-back personality, kindness, and love for country music from this environment. He lived in Point Pleasant Beach, New Jersey until middle school, which is where Glancy got his love for the beach. Glancy also takes a nice break from reality at Lake George, New York every summer with his mom, sister, and two aunts. He currently calls Toms River, New Jersey home. Glancy says, “I honestly don’t have too much good to say about the place except it’s where I developed the ability to make the most out of bad situations.”

Sports have always been a huge part of Glancy’s life. Not only does Glancy love to play and watch sports, sports is also determines huge decisions in his life. Glancy is currently a second year sport management major at the University of Florida. He says he chose to attend the University of Florida because he’s always been a fan of the Gators, and when he started looking at colleges, he saw it was an amazing school as well with a top 5 sport management program.
