For The Good Of The Game

For The Good Of The Game

This channel hosts the podcast...For The Good Of The Game! It is intended for subscribers who love the game of football at any level...from casual fan to devoted "football junkie!" The podcast will feature interviews with former NFL players and coaches, as well as prominent College & High School coaches and Veterans...discussing "football insights and life skills." I want to promote healthy discussions about "hot button" issues involved in and surrounding the game of football, as well as educate parents and athletes about the "pros & cons" of this GREAT game!
