DeKALB, Ill. - The summertime for a college athlete is a time to maintain fitness for the upcoming season. It's also a time to prepare for the future. For seniors Alan Baxter, Nabal Jefferson and redshirt junior Dominique Ware, the future is now, as all three landed internships working in the financial world.

At sunrise, the Huskie football players prepare to defend the team's Mid-American Conference Championship. By 9 A.M., the Huskies are in the workplace, contributing to corporate America.

NIUHuskies.com followed Alan Baxter one morning and asked him about his experience in his grueling but fruitful summer.
