TC198: Matt McGuire, Roanoke College


Back to one of our favorite states to visit with Matt McGuire, head coach at Roanoke College in the very strong Old Dominion Athletic Conference. Coach McGuire grew up not far from Roanoke College, so this was like a homecoming. He played his college baseball at William & Mary, recruited to replace our good friend Rich Prado of PlayInSchool.com.

In this episode, Coach McGuire talks about working every camp he could to get experience and exposure, the criteria for selecting potential opportunities, his priorities in life and how that feeds into his decision making process, interacting with the community in and around the campus, recruiting, fundraising, the value of a handwritten note, and his thoughts on the proposed split schedule (fall/spring) for NCAA DIII.

    Matt is a class act! Played with him and his brother for years and old neighbors as well. He’s going places and I couldn’t be prouder that a Byrd alumni is doing it

    Your listeners can hear something about Matt that I can tell you is true, as we’ve known each other since we were 8 years old. He’s genuine in every sense of the word. I’m glad it was able to shine through here. Us old Terriers are proud of him.
