He grew up in Spanish Harlem and picked up the basketball early. His motivation to play took him to All Hallows, in the Bronx, where as a player he was the floor general and ensured teammates like the late Troy Truesdale ate plenty off his sensational dimes. He's been named on this very show as an inspirational coach by several players who'd touched the Dribble N' Dimes mics such as Randy Williams, Marvin McCullough and Ronald Ramon (to name a few). Our guest attended Dowling college and after spending some time playing in Puerto Rico, he linked up with his homie (another Dribble N' Dimes alum) Tony Chiles to assist in coaching their alma mater All Hallows. Soon Tony would depart and that would set off decades of head coaching for our guest. Today he sits at the helm of the Bishop Loughlin Lions basketball team as their head coach. As a coach he's done some extraordinary things like: Had 8 out of 10 - Twenty Win Seasons, helped kids earn 10 Division 1 scholarships and in a 10 season span racked up 4 city championships, 6 Brooklyn/Queens CHSAA finals appearances (with half of those ending in championship trophies). He recently suffered a brain aneurism that left us all stunned, but incredibly hopeful. He's progressing well and aims to get back on the hardwood when he's cleared to make that transition. For now, hear him tell us the journey he has taken through basketball. On this episode, we welcome in coach Ed Gonzalez. --- This episode is sponsored by · Anchor: The easiest way to make a podcast. https://anchor.fm/app Support this podcast: https://anchor.fm/dribblendimes/support
From the swag filled streets of Harlem World USA this man took on all naysayers to achieve the dream of many by being drafted into the NBA. Prior to completing that feat this lanky phenom made a name for himself all across the ACC as a ferocious member of NC State's Wolfpack. While there his name rang as he led his team to countless victories against many of he league's top talent. On his ascent up the NYC basketball ranks he was told he'd be spending his formative high school years lacing up for Gary DeCesare and the St. Raymond Ravens (his brother Steve's favorite H.S. program). While there he worked his tail off and earned the opportunity to win a city title and take home Mr. Basketball honors and a McDonald's All American selection. While he still bleeds NC State white and red, his soul is draped in orange and blue. Get comfortable as we explore the basketball journey of current San Jose State University assistant coach, Julius Hodge. *****Be sure to subscribe to the podcast and tell a friend!***** Mix & Mastering courtesy of DJ Trends --- Support this podcast: https://anchor.fm/dribblendimes/support

It's all too familiar right now how significant an impact the coronavirus pandemic is having on our global community. A little over a month ago in the United States things were still relatively "normal." Then Rudy Gobert contracted the virus and shit got REAL in the world of sports! From there the NBA took action and postponed and ultimately cancelled their season.  The NCAA was next, they were in the midst of NCAA tournament qualifications when many of the conferences decided it was best to cancel the remainder of their tournaments. However, the Big East did not. Creighton and St. Johns tipped off at the world's most famous arena and while the arena was nearly empty, the game went on. Finally at halftime it was called and the NCAA was done for the season. On this episode Creighton assistant Terrence Rencher joins us to talk about the experience, what went down on the floor during this last game of the NCAA season and how he has been living his basketball life in our new reality.  *****Be sure to subscribe to the podcast and tell a friend!***** Mix & Mastering courtesy of DJ Trends --- This episode is sponsored by · Anchor: The easiest way to make a podcast. https://anchor.fm/app Support this podcast: https://anchor.fm/dribblendimes/support

He attended Paterson Catholic H.S. where he dominated the hardwood and garnered national attention. He was selected as a McDonald's All-American and played alongside notables such as Stephen Jackson, Jermaine Oneal, Shaheen Holloway and a tri-lingual speaking kat by the name of Kobe Bryant. Before "One & Done" was fly, he finished his single NCAA season at Villanova and made his way to the National Basketball Association. He played 15 seasons in the league with several clubs.

Royal Knights basketball team, and remains a community staple.

His path can only be described as highly unlikely for a kid from the Bronx.

Our guest is a NYC guy all the way through. We claim him in the BX, but he's resided in multiple boroughs and has made a mark everywhere he's set foot. Hanging with older crowds, he fell into the game of basketball and with the help of the "older heads" was put on the path to basketball success.  His climb up the hoops ladder landed him at St. Raymond H.S. and into the Raven family. There he quickly formed bonds with his newfound band of brothers and nurtured an adversarial relationship with coach Gary DeCesare. He developed his game and leadership abilities and was able to take them on a multi-stop college tour that culminated in him earning his college degree at the University of Pittsburgh at Johnstown. From there he leapt into a coaching career spanning nearly a decade, across several men's programs around the NCAA.  After serving time, as a consequence of an FBI investigation into the NCAA, Book chose Dribble N' Dimes as his first public opportunity to speak since becoming a newly free man. He sits with Manny Digital to walk through his past and share what's in store in his new future with the Gauchos.  Listen to the story of Emmanuel "Book" Richardson with special guest Erin Richardson on this episode of Dribble N' Dimes.
