Coach's Corner - Radio for Coaches by Coaches

"I stumbled on your show with John Anderson back in December and I absolutely love it!!! I listen to the podcast while I'm running and even while I'm driving in my truck. I listen to yours and two others. They are all GREAT in their own right, but  yours is done like an actual radio show, not a podcast. Keep up the good work, its GREAT STUFF!!! "

Chip Seagle. Offensive Coordinator,  Lanett HS,  Lanett, Alabama
