The best route to go would be internships with major sport outlets. In addition, guest blogging for sports blogs can help you get into the door connecting with the right people.
Like in Atlanta, Turner Broadcasting always does internships and that would be a great fit for you. It's for 11 months and they do pay a stipend. It can have you get into the door to meet some great contacts.
