Rich Take On Sports

Show Notes:

  • Rich Spotlight: David Cone
    • Has always loved participating regardless of what it is but football was his first passion
    • Wants to compete against the best and that’s why he wanted to attend Statesboro High School instead of the private school in Statesboro, GA
    • Helped Statesboro High win the Georgia state football championship his senior season after coming up short previous years
    • Signed with the University of Michigan with head coach Lloyd Carr and decided to stay at the school even though he knew he wouldn’t get a chance to start once new head coach Rich Rodriguez was hired
    • Ohio St./Michigan rivalry is unlike any other and there’s a deep hatred but it’s centered on respect
    • Music has always been a big part of his life and he taught himself how to play the guitar watching YouTube videos
    • Creating films and telling stories is another passion and after winning a film festival contest and getting a scholarship for film school in Atlanta he knew he wanted to pursue film directing
    • Released first single “So Close” in December 2017 and first album “Welcome Home” in February 2018
    • Sports helped develop and establish discipline in his life as well as understanding the importance of delayed gratification
    • Words of Wisdom from David Cone: “What you want in life can be out there but it takes a level of work and discipline that’s unknown to mankind and that gets rewarded on the backend.”

    Wonderful insight from a former Big 10 QB….loved the philosophy and big thinking from a former ‘jock.’
