FTGOTG S2, E9 | I'm pleased to share this "Special Feature" episode...an interview with three coaches who are not only standout leaders and prolific authors, but also host their own Podcasts / YouTube channels!
Coach Kenny Simpson is the head football coach at Searcy HS in Searcy, AR. Prior to Searcy, he helped rebuild and grow two programs...as the head football coach at Southside Charter HS and before that as the head coach at Alabama Christian Academy! Coach Simpson is an innovative coach and prolific author, having published five books to date. He provides a wealth of instruction and conducts super-informative interviews on his YouTube channel. Not only is Kenny an awesome family man, but he is also a tireless promoter of the game and dedicated to helping coaches improve!
Coach Dustin Mills is a Social Studies teacher and the head football coach at James M. Bennett HS in Salisbury, MD. He hosts the Anchor Down Leadership Podcast, where he discussed such life skills topics as Mindset, Mental Health, Respect, and Problem Solving. Dustin also owns Anchor Down Leadership Consulting...dedicated to developing high-level, value-based leaders, who will impact and grow their organizations. Coach Mills promotes five "anchors of leadership," which include: Selflessness, Commitment & Competency, Respect in Relationships, Positivity, and Ownership!
Coach Anthony Stone is a PE teacher at Gregory Elementary and a varsity assistant coach at Boylan Catholic HS in Rockford, IL. He has coached at every level of football from youth through College. Anthony hosts the Coach Stone Podcast on JC Hawks Radio and publishes the Quarterly Digital CSF Magazine! He hosts the Coach Stone Football: Back to the Basics YouTube channel and is the author of the Back to the Basics football drill manual series. And if that isn't enough, he also runs a Back to the Basics football camp series which has been featured across the United States and Internationally!
While many coaches struggle to accomplish all their routine daily tasks, these coaches go above and beyond training athletes...to grow the game and develop coaches! They each set a standard of professional excellence for other coaches to emulate!

If you can never get enough true crime... Congratulations, you’ve found your people.
We’re at our most vulnerable when we go to our doctors. We trust the person at the other end of that scalpel. We trust the hospital. We trust the system. Christopher Duntsch was a neurosurgeon who radiated confidence. He claimed he was the best in Dallas. If you had back pain, and had tried everything else, Dr. Duntsch could give you the spine surgery that would take your pain away. But soon his patients started to experience complications, and the system failed to protect them. Which begs the question: who - or what - is that system meant to protect? From Wondery, the network behind the hit podcast Dirty John, DR. DEATH is a story about a charming surgeon, 33 patients and a spineless system. Reported and hosted by Laura Beil.
