    educate yourself
    understand the agent business model
    how to approach the agent selection process

    Episode 523: Sean Doherty, Head Coach Hamden Hall Country Day School

    Today’s guest is Sean Doherty, Head Coach of Hamden Hall Country Day School in Hamden, CT!

    Coach Doherty is a Worcester, Mass native and has been around the game for several decades! After high school he played collegiately at Worcester State College before jumping directly into coaching. He spent time as an assistant at his alma mater under fellow podcast guest (and my college Head Coach), Tom Moore. He soon after became an Assistant on staff at Division II powerhouse, Assumption.

    Next up was a successful run at Holy Cross and a brief stop at Western Kentucky before taking over the program at Division III, Salem State. After his run at Salem State he reunited with Coach Moore at Quinnipiac University, which is where our relationship began! He is entering year 8 at Hamden Hall this fall.

    Today we talked about:


    Growing up being a multi-sport athlete 
    A powerful conversation with a referee after a summer game
    His recruiting experience and collegiate career
    Starting the JV program at his alma mater
    The major differences between D1, D2 & D3 hoops
    Necessary skill sets & characteristics to play at a high level
    His 3 NCAA Tournament appearances at Holy Cross
    How accountability was the cornerstone of a teams' success
    How he handles discussions with parents
    and much more 

    Appreciate you tuning in. Hope you enjoy!

    Episode 522: The Latest NIL Craziness...

    Episode 522: The Latest NIL Craziness...

    That school paid how much money??
    Wait, that kid went back in the portal?
    That school doesn't even have a collective?

    Questions that are uttered on the daily...

    Today I went on a little rant about the changing landscape in college sports. Now approaching three years from the day NIL became a reality, you would think that we would have this situation figured out.

    It's quite the opposite. I feel like today is more chaotic then ever before.

    Episode 520: Jordan Green, Ballogy Chief Experience Officer

    Today’s guest is Jordan Green, Chief Experience Officer at Ballogy!



    Jordan is a former collegiate and pro athlete who is a remarkable example of how you can turn your skill set and passion into a life long career after the ball stops bouncing! He was a three year start at Texas A&M University, played for the San Antonio Spurs G-League affiliate for 3 years and then spent one year playing professionally in France.



    He had a short stint working with Ernst & Young in between his playing years, and after hanging up the shoes (for real the second time), he stepped into a big role with Ballogy, a software company that is transforming the way athletes prepare for their sports.



    Today we talked about:


    When he first started getting serious about basketball


    Getting state ranked early and what it really meant


    His recruiting process and why he chose Texas A&M


    How he built relationships the moment he got to college


    Preparing for a job in something other than sports


    His first job at Ernst & Young and what his role was


    The moment he realized he missed the game


    The rollercoaster of emotions during G-League tryouts


    A quick stint playing professionally in France


    How he got involved in Ballogy & all about the company


    The important aspects of modern player development


    His entrepreneurial project – “The Whole Athlete”


    and much more
