Great podcast

Dennis,

This is definitely an awesome avenue for you to teach the younger players coming up the game in the right way. Look into having Jimmy Reilly the Associate head coach at Jefferson University. Played at West Catholic and Ursinus (prior to you). I’m sure he has great insight working with the great Herb Magee over the past 10yrs.

Keep it up and best of luck!

Keep up the great work!

Hey Dennis,

Loved the podcast with Pat Carroll. Pat was an amazing teammate at Hatboro-Horsham, even better person. You’re doing an incredible job with all of your podcasts.
