Talking Girls Softball, Swimming and High School Football on March 6th Show

It was fun doing the show last Sunday from the historic Beverly Hilton on Oscar night.  For those of you that don't know, the hotel, which was owned by the late Merv Griffin, is the site of the annual Golden Globe Awards.

Right now, Trish and I are busy putting together Sunday's show.  We'll be broadcasting from Miami, and since we'll be in the Sunshine State, we've decided to take a swing at girls' softball for the first time this year.

We've just confirmed that Florida's winningest softball coach, Robert Iamurri of Naples High School will join us as a guest.  Iamurri, who was the 2010 NHSCA Softball Coach of the Year, is in his 26th year as head coach.

Iamurri has won a state record 10 state championships, plus two slow pitch state titles. His overall record is an incredible 727-78-2.

Speaking of state championships, we'll have Bishop Hendricken swim coach Dave Hanson on the show. Hanson, who started the swim program at the Warwick, Rhode Island school in the late 70's, will talk about his incredible program that has won 22 straight boys' state swimming championships.

Finally, we'll be talking high school football with Byron Jenson of the High School Rudy Awards.  Jenson will talk about the two-year old award named after Daniel "Rudy" Ruettiger, who became a famous player while at Notre Dame while only playing two downs as a 5-6, 165 pounds walk-on.

Earlier this year on the NHSCA Sports Hour, we spoke with this year's winner Chance Anthony of Breckenridge County High School.

Anthony was born without the lower part of his right arm, but that prevented the senior from being a contributing member of the school's football and basketball teams.
