    Steve Harris: Earning the Right to Shoot the Ball

    Steve Harris: Earning the Right to Shoot the Ball

    Our featured guest on Season 02, Episode 08 of the 3RIPLE 3HREAT podcast is Steve Harris. Steve was a great STUDENT-athlete. While most athletes transfer schools due to a lack of playing time or coaching styles, Steve transfered because of EDUCATION. In Steve's point of view, he thought education was more important than athletics which is very true!
    Steve grew up in a home filled with aunts and uncles. He was the last one to receive anything from food to clothes.
    His uncles took him to the park at 6, 7 and 8 years old. They played basketball with him and treated him like an adult. He had to earn the right to shoot the ball.
    “That hunger and that edge was instilled in me just because I was last. I didn’t want to be last forever.”
    Tune into this episode of the 3RIPLE 3HREAT podcast to hear Steve Harris share about athletics, education and making sacrifices.

    Monte Lee: From Cougar to Tiger

    Monte Lee: From Cougar to Tiger

    On this week's episode of the 3RIPLE 3HREAT podcast, Jermel interviews Head Baseball Coach of the Clemson Tigers Baseball Team, Monte Lee! Monte previously coached at his alma mater (and where he first met Jermel) College of Charleston. Growing up Monte was a well-rounded athlete partcipating in baseball, soccer, football, basketball and wrestling at different parts of his life. Injuries dictated what sports he could participate in leaving baseball as a safe option. We are sure many athletes can relate to needing to choose a specific sport due to certain injuries. Obviously, Monte's experience in the athletic world has molded the way he coaches. For example, "I’ve used that experience from my recruiting in recruiting kids in my 20+ years coaching. Who wants you the most? It’s not necessarily the school or the program. It’s the coach that’s recruiting you. Are they recruiting you harder than everybody else because they really want you to come play for them? They’re probably going to give you the best opportunity."
