TC426: Rick Weaver, Defiance (OH) HS

We’re headed back to Ohio to talk to Rick Weaver, assistant baseball coach and head golf coach at Defiance High School.

In this episode Coach Weaver talks about football in Ohio (it’s a big deal), his Ohio State Football obsession, his motivation for coaching, how he got his start in coaching, teaching math and statistics (and, no, he’s not a baseball stats guy), learning coaching as a former outfielder, his golf duties, the mental side of the game, Ken Ravizza, how young athletes have changed, coaching pressures, year-round sports, extra-curriculars, the state of umpiring, and advice to young coaches.
