S.P.O.T. ,

Football from a unique perspective.

I’ve had the opportunity to meet the hosts at some camps my son has attended and these guys are genuine down to earth dudes who just love football and make it their mission to pass on their knowledge and experience. Being a former player myself and having a son that is currently excelling in high school, I am thoroughly enjoying the podcast. The guests have been excellent so far and the questions on point. I especially have enjoyed the insight on recruiting. Whether from the coaching standpoint or the athlete. Hearing their respective perspectives has been very enlightening to me.
