As a fundraiser, Duby worked as a development professional for the Archdiocese of New York.

A NCAA qualifier as a thrower on the Ohio State track and field team, Duby translated that success into developing successful student-athletes at Morehead State and Dayton. With the Flyers, he tutored 10 student-athletes to 37 podium finishes at the Atlantic 10 Championships while the women’s track and field team produced the top cumulative team grade point average among Dayton’s intercollegiate programs.
