The Shooters Touch is a podcast that brings you stories from across the basketball world. We have a huge passion for the game and want to bring the stories that may not be considered “mainstream” to your ears! As former players and coaches basketball has been a huge part of our lives and it’s our pleasure to bring these to you! Retired sneakerheads, you may even catch an episode about our favorite kicks!
Turner Scott: Truman State Guard
Turner Scott is a West Des Moines native who has a tremendous story of overcoming adversity and dealing with expectations. He was a multi sport athlete at Valley high school and talks about how that helped him in his basketball career. Who does Turner think would win a free throw contest between him and former guest(also his coach at Valley and Truman State) Jeff Horner?
Hannah Fuller - Drake Women’s Basketball
Basketball has always been a love of Hannah Fuller. As a lot of athletic families are, the Fuller’s were super competitive, whether it was a game of UNO or hoops! It was great talking to Hannah about how her role has changed over the years and how she spent last year, a year she spent most of it injured.
Jeremey Ainley: Clear Lake Boy’s Basketball Coach
Jeremey was a great conversation about youth sports, specialization in sports as well as his coaching mentors. Clear Lake has made it to State 2 out of the last 2 years and it’s easy to hear why.

Recently retired from Norwalk High School, Chris Larson amassed 343 wins in 24 years at the helm at Norwalk. He has tremendous stories and really built his program the right way! You’ll enjoy his connection to Drake University and Vets Auditorium, a connection that we didn’t even know was possible!
