Today's episode explores the journey of someone cut from his high school basketball and baseball team, but through perseverance and dedication ended up becoming a starter for both sports as a senior and then playing baseball at a Division 1 university.
In contrast to his story, his best friend at the same school was a starter in both basketball and baseball as a young athlete, and even played at the varsity baseball level as a freshman; however, his story quickly takes a turn (especially in basketball) since he peaked early and he watched others catch up in growth and pass him in athleticism.
Both athletes attend the same university and attend walk-on tryouts for the baseball team. Listen to see how their stories turn out.
"When I got cut, I didn't blame the coach... I obviously wasn't good enough. If I was good enough, I would have made the team. There obviously were weaknesses, or things that I could improve on." - Chad
