Caron, Cosgrove, football players featured in Colonial Athletic Association video

Sandy Caron, a University of Maine professor of family relations and human sexuality, is featured in a new video produced by the Colonial Athletic Association that highlights the Male Athletes Against Violence program.

The video features UMaine football players Trevor Bates, Sherrod Baltimore, Michael Kozlakowski, Chase Hoyt and Christophe Mulumba-Tshimanga, as well as head football coach Jack Cosgrove, explaining their role in MAAV.

Caron founded MAAV in 2004 as a way to involve more men in conversations about domestic violence, sexual assault and bullying prevention. The male athletes regularly host events and talk to student groups.

The CAA Sports video, “Going Deep: University Of Maine — ‘Male Athletes Against Violence,’” is available via the conference’s website and social media. It also will be shown during halftime of games broadcast both regionally and nationally by the American Sports Network and Comcast SportsNet.
