You have to love when you try new things, it is inevitable that things will go wrong. In episode #1 of our Athlete Game Plan Interview Series it was no different.
I started off the interview by calling it the Athletic Game Plan! LOL, and then my gardener makes a surprise fly by with his leaf blower towards the end of the interview. None the less the very first interview of many to come was still a success. It was filled with candid answers from Chris Hale, former Buffalo Bills and University of Southern California Fighting Trojan star defensive back and arguably a candidate for Mayor of Los Angeles, (just joking).
Below the video is a short bio and a timeline for the interview if you want to skip ahead or go back and listen to a section again.
