January 19th NHSCA Sport Hour Now Available On-Demand

by Jeff Fisher
Host, NHSCA Sports Hour

If you missed last night's show featuring Sacred Heart High School (Los Angeles, CA) girls' basketball coach Greg Nakashima and 2011 High School Rudy Award winner Addison Marshall of Foster High School in Texas, don't fear, it's now available in our archives.

Nakashima talks about the trials-and-tribulations his girls face because the school doesn't have a gym of its own.  One of the biggest hurdles is the walk/run the girls must make every day to get to a rec center about a mile away for practice.  The journey takes them through gang-infested areas of East LA.

Marshall joined us during a chemotherapy treatment in Houston hospital as he battles leukemia.  Marshall and his mom talked about Addison's two-and-a-half year battle with the disease and his successful return to the football field for the second half of his team's final game in November.
