When a Coach Kneels With His Players

When a Coach Kneels With His Players

Former St. Michael’s College coach Joshua Meyer and former player Winston Jones join the show to talk about their team’s courageous decision to kneel before a basketball game.


This week we speak to former St. Michael’s College coach Joshua Meyer and one of his former players, Winston Jones, about their experience taking a knee during the National Anthem in the 2017 season. You don’t want to miss this conversation.

We also have Choice Words about the USOPC’s decision to defend Olympic athletes’ rights to protest. In addition, we have Just Stand Up and Just Sit Down awards to Duke women’s basketball coach and DMV native Kara Lawson and Houston sports. All this and more on this week’s show!
