We’re not talking about just athletic performance; we are really focusing on their attitudes and their character. Why do so many coaches notice a big difference in this generation of college athlete? That’s the focus of this episode of our College Recruiting Weekly podcast.
Our guest is Kevin Richardson. He’s a lifelong friend and former high school football teammate of Dan Tudor (Note: By “teammate”, we would like to clarify: Dan’s junior year in high school football consisted primarily of holding a blocking dummy so his senior counterpart, Kevin, could pummel him into submission Monday through Thursday in preparation for Friday’s game). Kevin went on to play football at Stanford University, and is now the proud father of Jack Richardson, a quarterback for the Cardinal. Richardson also is a college sports radio broadcaster for San Jose State University football and Cal State Monterey Bay men’s basketball. He has also built a successful financial advising firm, Tactical Wealth Management.
We’ll also discuss the recruiting process, why Kevin would only take his toothbrush with him on roadtrips as a college football player, and competitive Christmas light installations at the Richardson house.
