In this episode the Crew dials the voicemail to answer a question from a loyal Power Athlete Radio listener:

Hello, I was curious if you had any tips or recommendations for a first-year athlete checking in for college sports wage based off of past experience. Maybe you could give him some tips that will help them to be a little bit more successful in that transition from high school sport to expectations out of college level and thanks a bunch for the consideration. I have a nephew that I’m super proud of and it’s his first day at football and I really took him to kick-ass-and-take-names and I just you know, I know that there’s experience that’s out there that he can glean from and I’d love to send him some podcasts to listen to to be inspired by and I’m hoping you guys can cover this topic one time. Thanks a bunch.

College has given me the confidence I need to fail.

College is all about getting an education, the most powerful weapon which you can use to change the world. Knowledge accrued from higher education is more than a piece of paper, especially if you play a collegiate sport. Responsibility for yourself and a team to make the grades, accountability for actions taken outside school and sport, and managing stress of potentially thousands of eyes putting your performance under the microscope. John and Tex welcome Block One Coach Carl Case to discuss the toolkit required for a collegiate athlete to go pro in something other than sports. There is plenty to navigate in this episode that will lead to success including how to take a joke, utilizing office hours, and why you do not have to drink all the beers.
