Shane Battier Stops By To Talk Basketball & Pizza Hut’s Ultimate Fan Job Where Someone’s Going All D1 NCAA Championships

Did you hear that Pizza Hut is running a contest to find someone who will become its “Ultimate Fan” and that fan will be hired, earn $50,000 during the project and will attend 90 NCAA championship events? No joke, you can sign up for a chance to win here. At my age and family situation, I’m out. This is all you guys.

Full details – here.

The right candidate will be outgoing, enthusiastic and eager to share his/her journey with fans. He/she have a proven track record of creating great content, with a detailed understanding of Facebook, Twitter, Instagram and Snapchat. The All-American should be ready to roll at all times and able to professionally handle everything from a live media interview to a Facebook Live broadcast. The ideal candidate should think outside the [pizza] box and bring big ideas for how best to celebrate each championship with fans!

The All-American will be on the road. A lot. So, he/she should be prepared for adventure, but also prepared to face any challenge – from flight delays and rain delays, to finding a dry cleaner that can get grass stains out of a mascot costume.

Desired Skills and Qualifications:

  • A serious passion for and knowledge of all NCAA sports

  • Socially savvy with a track record of creating engaging content for all social media platforms

  • Must be able to demonstrate the ability to grow and maintain a robust social following

  • Comfortable being on-camera for everything from livestreaming events and Snapchatting to interviewing sports legends or being interviewed by national media

  • The ability to work effectively and efficiently under tight deadlines and on the road

  • Creative and not afraid to bring forth good ideas for celebrating championships and creating innovative content

  • Good character and good judgment to serve as an official public representative of Pizza Hut to consumers, stakeholders and media

You’ll go to the Frozen Four. You’ll go to the NCAA skiing championship. You’ll pretty much be a Pizza Hut correspondent at these events.

Shane Battier stopped by to talk about the program, some college basketball, NBA superteams and the one piece of college memorabilia he’s held on to all these years from the Duke national championship in 2001.
