Episode 8 - Craig Hanson - A Growth Story

Update: 2019-07-01


My guest today is a mentor of mine, a two-sport collegiate varsity letterman, one of the more impressive sports philanthropists that Pennsylvania has to offer and a 12-year veteran head coach of the Dickinson College Red Devils baseball program.

The opportunity to sit down with someone that molded me into the person I am today is a unique one. Coach Hanson saw an ambitious kid with pedestrian baseball skills at the college level and provided me with a path to navigate college life. When finishing beers seemed as important to me as finishing innings, Coach Hanson helped put me on a righteous track. Red Devils alumni and college athletes across the country have been asking about when this episode would drop, so without further ado, here’s Mr Craig Hanson!
