I recently went Unscripted with Andy Warnock. Andy is a husband, father, entrepreneur, developer, dreamer, visionary and founder for the Dots Tots Foundation. This is the most incredible 30+ minutes of podcast I have spent so far and that is saying something. Incredible family that is giving back to the community of Hilliard.
Coach Dave Richardson is the Head Strength and Conditioning Coach/Men’s and Women’s Basketball and Women’s Tennis at the University of Arkansas. He earned Registered Strength and Conditioning Coach Emeritus (RSCC*E) designation by the National Strength and Conditioning Association (NSCA) in June 2020. In this podcast, we discuss COVID impacts on college athletics, re-live some memories of his time in Columbus at THE Ohio State University and review the Ninja Foodi Grill. I appreciate Dave taking the time to be on Unscripted.
This Unscripted One on One is with my close family friend, my assistant by day and OSU Softball Volunteer Coach Cammi Prantl. Cammi is a former OSU Softball player and current volunteer coach at Ohio State. Cammi was a four-year starter for the Buckeyes and three-time All-Big Ten performer. She never batted lower than .329 in a season and broke Ohio State’s all-time hits (247) and doubles (64) records as a senior. The Ashville, Ohio native became the 11th All-American in program history in her final year with her selection to the NFCA third team. In addition she played professionally in Italy.
Wide ranging Unscripted One on One tonight with Marcus Williams. As a former Ohio State football player, Marcus developed a special interest in sports medicine and helping the athlete throughout the entire continuum of care: injury prevention, return to sport and performance enhancement. We cover a lot of topics in this podcast from his playing days with THE Ohio State University to his rankings of the top pizzas in Columbus.
NOTE: There were some audio issues throughout the podcast but it is worth the time to listen to.

I recently had the opportunity to sit down with Hilliard Davidson Head Basketball Coach Tim Congrove. Coach Congrove enters his sixth season with the Davidson coaching staff, and his third as the Head Coach at Hilliard Davidson High School. In this podcast we discuss the incredible 2018-2019 season with a team that had 10 seniors. Rebuilding the next season and look ahead at a preview for this upcoming season. 2020 could be another special season for Hilliard Davidson boys and girls teams. 2018-2019 was one to remember. Thank you Coach!
Every opportunity to do a podcast has been an honor and this one is no different. I recently completed a podcast with Zach Fleer who is the Co-Owner of 270Hoops, Director of 270 Hoops Fall League, The Intro and 270 Hoops Battle for the City. He is a husband and believer. I met Zach a few years ago and have continued to be amazed at the growth of 270 Hoops. In my opinion, Zach is the most powerful man in Ohio High School basketball. We had so much to cover that we went nearly a full hour. Great interview. Incredible history to get to where 270 Hoops is today. Thank you Zach for sharing the conversation and your time.
Tonight I sat down with Dr. James Onate. Jimmy is a friend and educator at THE Ohio State University. We talk sports, science, comparisons, recruiting and THE University of North Carolina. By far I was not the smartest guy on the podcast but Dr. Onate is always engaging, interesting and spends his days doing incredible work. I appreciate his friendship and willingness to always talk about a variety of topics.
Dr. Jimmy Onate joined The Ohio State University in January 2010. He earned his PhD in Human Movement Science from the University of North Carolina at Chapel Hill in 2002 with a focus in biomechanics and motor learning. He has been an academic research faculty member interested in all aspects of human movement relative to injury prevention and performance optimization since 2003.
He currently serves as the director of the PhD program in Health and Rehabilitation Sciences, chair of graduate studies in Health and Rehabilitation Sciences, a co-director of Ohio State’s Sports Medicine’s Movement Analysis & Performance (MAP) research program, a research scholar for the National Federation of High School Sports Medicine Advisory Committee, and a research consultant to Naval Special Warfare groups based in Virginia Beach, VA.
I am not the only one that started a podcast during the pandemic. Actually, I would argue that I don’t even have the best podcast in my own house. Today’s Unscripted One-on-One is with Emma Conrad. Some of you may know her as “Princess 1.0.” What an incredible joy as a parent to see your children pursuing their dreams and their goals. In this brief podcast, Emma and I share her new podcast with my audience. We also discuss the various ways that she inspires me on a daily basis. She also may have given a pretty good clue as to where she is going to attend college next year.
The latest addition to the Unscripted Podcast is a true honor. Stacie Raterman is the Director of Communications for Hilliard Schools. We begin by discussing her early career in local radio and now her role in school leadership during a pandemic. I am thankful for her time and that Hilliard Schools has an open book policy. No question was off limits. This discussion gives us the opportunity to see “behind the curtain” on the difficult decisions that are made and continue to be made. We also discuss how the leadership of Dr. John Marshhausen and his team made a huge difference in the midst of this virus. I have so much respect for Stacie and the entire leadership team from Hilliard Schools. I am thankful for her availability and the time she dedicated to this podcast.
The situation continues to be very fluid and tough decisions continue to be made.
Dr. Marshhausen has the health and lives of 17,000 students and 2,000 staff members to consider every night when he puts his head on his pillow.
Resources are available for those struggling with eLearning and mental health.
The schools have no intention of keeping kids overnight, despite what you may have read or heard.
Stacie serves Hilliard City Schools as Director of Communications and has been with the district since 2013. She graduated from Ohio University with her bachelor’s degree in Communication with a Journalism specialization. She earned her master’s degree in Communication from Ohio University. Stacie’s main responsibility is to openly communicate with parents, community members, and staff the message of our district.
Stacie and her husband Dan have two sons in the district. Their family stays busy with hockey, soccer and Boy Scouts.

He and his wife Polly live and work in Nashville, Tennessee. What a rich 30 minutes discussing all of that but mainly writing and sharing your story.

He will bless your day.

Tonight I sat down with my good friend and band of brother, Ryan Grammatico. Ryan is the Community Engagement Director for Right Moves for Youth in Charlotte, North Carolina.

You’ll hear about the incredible work he is doing in his community both in his job and on his own. We talk race, changing the score and end talking about being a “Girl Dad.” Video and podcast available below. Links to items mentioned throughout the video below as well.

I recently had the blessing of hosting a zoom call with 3 guys I have so much respect for. Tonight we squeezed a lot of conversation in a limited zoom allowance. I can’t thank them enough for their time and the conversation. We discussed some important topics and still found a way to smile. May we all treat one another the way these guys have always treated me.
