Adrian Conway, my former teammate and team captain to the Wasatch Brutes is on the show. (@adrianconway) We'll discuss how the team came to be, difficulties they experienced, what the driving force behind their success is and their mission to #stopthemayhem. We also dive into topics about coaching—his own experience as a coach over the years and what he has learned about athletes both in person and virtually. Adrian is a wealth of knowledge and an amazing leader, there is a lot of pearls of knowledge in this one. Enjoy the show!
