Mr. Nick Newman

Been listening to Nick’s perspective on the 9ers last season, and he gives a great preview on what to expect with stats and comparison with the other players and foresee a very positive preview of what we expect to see with this season. He will say it like it is and hearing that is refreshing. Excited for this podcast! Go 9ers!
