This Week’s QUOTABLE QUOTES on Beacon Hill

By Bob Katzen

GOV. BAKER MOVES ON TO THE NCAA — Gov. Baker was appointed to be president of the NCAA beginning in 2023. Here are some of the things he said following his appointment:

“My wife was probably the best athlete in the family.”

“I’ve always believed that sports just have this tremendous power to bring people together.”

“It’s big and complicated. So have been a lot of things I’ve done in my life, but most of the time, they were absolutely worth doing.”

“It’s about being a convener and the collaborator of a very large organization that has a lot of points of view and seeking to find those places where people can come together, can agree and can make a case generally to the public, to their student athletes, to their alumni and their fans about what the best way to ensure that we don’t lose this jewel going forward.”

“It is through sports that so many people find themselves and develop a lot of the skills and capabilities that translate through the rest of their lives.”
