As you've seen, Season 3 is dedicated to my father, Mike Jacox, who passed away late in 2021. I Love and miss you, Dad. Thank you, #CatchSitkaSeafoods and #ACMEHomes, for your continued support!!!
Today, we sat down with my former college teammate, John Hallead, one of the most talented athletes I've been around. He was inducted into the Central Washington Hall of Fame in 2011 Hallead after he prepped at Ellensburg High School. Before attending CWU, he began a professional baseball career with the Colorado Rockies organization. He played four seasons of football for the Wildcats from 1997 to 2000. He was a first-team National Association of Intercollegiate Athletics (NAIA) AII-American as a sophomore, was named a third-team National Collegiate Athletic Association (NCAA) Division II AII-American by Football Gazette as a senior, and was the Columbia Football Association's Defensive Player of the Year in both 1998 and 2000.
Today's conversation is about John the Dad. We explore #divorce, #abuse, #mindset, #service, and much more as John opens up with amazing #vulnerability. We discussed the importance of #empathy and slowing down to understand what your LEGACY will be like as a father. How often have you thought about that question?
We had a lot of fun during the lightning round and heard about John coaching the super talented Adam Bighill, who plays linebacker in the Canadian Football League.
John's story will inspire you, and I hope you enjoy listening.
