We've had some fantastic guests on The Coaching Journey Podcast. Today, though, is what I consider to be the best episode we have done so far on the podcast. Today's episode features Pat McCann, professional player with the Richmond Kickers in the USL, and yet Pat's name isn't one you'll be familiar with.
Pat is from Long Island, NY, and our discussion is 60 minutes of raw, real, and honest insight into what the world of professional sports really is. This isn't the discussion focusing on the glitz and glamour of a champions league superstar. Rather, this is the real discussion on what it takes to play professionally, and chase a dream that almost everyone has.
This is an inspirational story that any coach, player, or fan of the game NEEDS to listen to. We discuss Pat's journey from Long Island, NY, to trials with MLS clubs, to purchasing a one way ticket to Ireland on the hopes of acquiring a professional contract. Pat's story is what the pathway looks like for most players, and we are proud we are able to bring this necessary discussion to you.
