MULTI SPORT ATHLETES ON PREP SPORTS WEEKLY
It was a very interesting evening of radio on Thursday night’s edition of Prep Sports Weekly on FOX Sports 1380 & FM 95.3.
The subject was “MultiSport Athletes” and we might have added the phrase “a dying breed” to that title.
Our diverse guests were:
Everett High School Coach Bruce Overstreet. Coach Overstreet is a frequent contributor to the Health Matters Show with his popular “Overstreet Over Fifty” segments. When he’s not coaching, mentoring and teaching his students, he’s also participated in The Camino de Santiago in Spain; run with the bulls in Pamplona and other off-the-wall athletic endeavors ranging from Masters Level Decathlons to Ultimate Frisbee.
Physical Therapist Jordan James from IRG Physical & Therapy. Jordan was a goalie for the Houston Dynamo of the MLS and is now responsible for all Sports Performance related items for Integrated Rehabilitation Group, Sports Physical Therapy and Performance Centers, and IRG Performance. Over his coaching career, he has worked with numerous youth athletes, high school athletes, collegiate athletes, everyday people, MLS, MLB, NHL, NLL, CFL, WHL, NBA, and NFL players to perform and function better.
Jordan Brajcich was the two-year starting quarterback for the Jackson High School Timberwolves; starting point guard for Jackson’s boy’s basketball team and is a state-level competitor for Jackson’s Golf team. Jordy is currently pondering offers to play golf at the collegiate level. Jordy will graduate from Jackson having played three sports for all four years of high school; very much a dying breed of athlete in this era of specialization.
All three brought a tremendous amount of knowledge and support to the show. You can listen to a Podcast of Prep Sports Weekly; go to the FOX Sports 1380 section and check out the Sound Cloud for all three segments.
Prep Sports Weekly is heard every Thursday at 6:00 pm on FOX Sports 1380 & FM 95.3. The hosts are Tom Lafferty, Sports Director of FOX Sports 1380 and Steve Willits of the Sound Live Sports Network.
