On today’s podcast, I talk with Jeff McCann, executive director of The AthLife Foundation, a national platform that through grant funding, training and industry leading resources helps schools create a critical professional mentoring position in secondary education called an Academic Athletic Coach.

The AthLife Foundation is working to ensure that deserving kids from around the nation from the most challenged, yet promising communities, can achieve in their future careers beyond sport.
