TC346: Daniel Medina, Chatfield HS (CO)

In his still relatively young career, Daniel Medina has seen it all when it comes to the high school landscape. He has coached at an inner-city Denver public high school with a $400 budget, an elite private school, and now a large public high school. The differences are obvious, but the similarities might surprise you.

In this episode, Coach Medina talks about his dad (playing for, coaching for, and, now, having him on his staff), playing baseball in the inner-city, playing three sports (almost by necessity), what he had to learn as a coach, coaching at a school where he was the fifth head coach in five years, taking that same team to the tournament for the first time in more than a decade, how to gain trust, different challenges at different schools, and what he accomplished at each stop.
