    Mike Hostilo: King of the Pivot (Repost)

    Mike Hostilo: King of the Pivot (Repost)

    Now that Jermel President and the DAE Foundation are partnering with the Mike Hostilo Law Firm, we are sharing Mike's podcast episode again. You can hear one of Jermel and Mike's earliest conversations right here on the 3RIPLE 3HREAT podcast! We had no idea at the time such great things would come from our meeting, but we aren't surprised given the importance COMMUNITY plays in both our lives.
    Mike moved to Beaufort, South Carolina in the 7th grade. Mike's dad is a marine and Mike grew up in Laurel Bay Military Housing.

    "In military communities, it was really important for the parents and the kids to be involved in youth sports."  Just like us, you've probably seen commercials for the Mike Hostilo Law Firm around town. But did you know, Mike was a student-athlete in high school.  Attorney Mike Hostilo is an excellent example of a former student-athlete pivoting into an extremely successful career off the field.

    The PIVOT is a power position in basketball. If you're in the pivot, you're in the 3RIPLE 3HREAT. You have three choices: pass, dribble or shoot. In basketball, you have seconds to make this position. In life, you have a little more time to come to a decision.

    Most middle and high school student-athletes do not go on to become professional athletes. Listen to Mike Hostilo's story to learn when he pivoted from athletic dreams to professional dreams and how he utilized the skills he learned on the field to grow a successful law firm.
    In 2022, the 3RIPLE 3HREAT podcast is going in a different direction with a focus on psychology. For example, this year we will have guests on the podcast discussing mental health when it comes to the student-athlete. With professional athletes like Simone Biles and Naomi Osaka opening up about their mental health struggles, it’s time we bring this issue down to the middle and high school levels.

    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.

Fills an important gap that needed addressing

This is your chance to hear from a college basketball Hall-of-Famer on what student athletes and their parents need to know. It is for students and athletes of all ages and experience levels. And the messages are delivered through interesting stories and guests!

Top podcast for student athletes

Jermel does a great job relaying information to student athletes and their families. I’m looking forward to hearing Jermel interview members of the Charleston community and former student athletes with successful careers.
