    TBL 019: True Leadership

    University of Richmond Head Football Coach Russ Huesman feels good about his team going into the 2020 season, citing that he has players that are true leaders. “It’s easy for you to go get an extra lift in,” he says, but the true leaders – “they start to grab one, grab two, grab three, and bring people along…the guys doing that are turning into really good leaders.” A Division 1 football coaching veteran, Coach Huesman learned from some of the best including former Richmond Head Coach Dave Clawson (current head coach at Wake Forest) and longtime William & Mary Head Coach Jimmye Laycock, who served in that position for 38 straight years. In 2008, Coach Huesman served as the Defensive Coordinator for Head Coach Mike London, when the Spiders won University of Richmond’s first ever National Championship. To no surprise, he credits the players’ accountability to each other for that championship season. “True Leadership” is all about being a great teammate and in this episode, you’ll find many lessons that are once again applicable to not only sports, but business and life as well.

Captivating Conversation

In this podcast Ben does a remarkable job engaging with his guests. Throughout their seamless conversations I found myself feeling educated, entertained, and (best of all) inspired. He encourages his listeners to get off the bench and get in the game in order to start living their best lives. I can honestly say, after listening I was ready to do just that! Every day you have the opportunity to have “the best day ever.” Thank you for reminding me, Ben. The Bottom Line podcast has definitely earned a ‘subscribe’ from me.
