When you’ve been around coaches as much as I’ve been in my professional and personal life, you get to meet a lot of great people who always put others ahead of themselves. On today’s podcast, I talk with Chuck Petersen, who is not only a coach, but a true friend.

Petersen is currently the head coach at Hyde Park High School in Austin, Texas. The Panthers are part of the Texas Association of Private and Parochial Schools (TAPPS).

Prior to returning to his native Texas, Petersen was the head coach at Orange Lutheran in the uber-tough Trinity League in Southern California. Before that, he was a college assistant coach at Air Force and North Texas. In 2003, while the offensive coordinator at Air Force, Petersen was named the American Football Coaches Association’s Assistant Coach of the Year.

Below you can listen to my chat with Coach Petersen that covers a lot of ground, including faith and football.
