What an episode we have in store with Duke Baxter! You will learn very early on that by the end of the episode you will want to run through a brick wall for Coach Duke. The show has many stories about respect and how parents and coaches can instill respect in their kids from a very young age.
Duke talks about ways that he helps both coaches and young athletes to reach the upmost respect for the game and the people involved in the game. He also talks about his book, “Taking on the Title of Coach”. This book is a must read for coaches on any level. Players make sure to listen and hang on to every word Duke says about “not dropping the mic”. One of the main points of our conversation with Duke was about the 24-hour rule. Also, a conversation was had about what age is a good time for travel ball.
This episode is instructional, entertaining, and exciting all at the same time, which is exactly who Duke Baxter is. The inspiration in this episode runs very deep and each coach or player that listens to this episode will be fired up about getting back in between those chalk lines.
