The Globetrottin’ ADs – S2E10 – Live from the NADC

Globetrottin' ADs
January 21,  2021

Nick and Matt are live from the 2020 NIAAA and NFHS National Athletic Directors Conference… or as live as you can be for a virtual conference. This episode is full of clips that were taken from sessions from the conference or from conversations that happened during or after sessions. Nick and Matt will lead you through all of the sections of this episode that include reflections about the conference but also about the year in general.

Up first its just the guys talking about the courses, workshops, round table session and sections meetings. Its not until the get into the Opening General session that some clips come up and to start it off is NFL Hall of Famer Tony Dungy and then NIAAA All Star Mike Ellson.

Getting into the bulk of the episode Nick and Matt welcome clips from international and state side AD about what they miss most but also like most about this years NADC. Then for another perspective the guys welcome their sponsor Al, from Coach Evaluator for his perspective as a vendor.

After an ad break is the biggest section where guests talk about what positives have come out of this year for them and their programs. Getting close to the end we hear from Mike Ellson again but also Doug Killgore and the NIAAA Associate Executive Director Phil Rison.

Before wrapping it up we are treated to a story about one ADs father and his professional wrestling career, just one of the amazing people you meet at the NADC. Nick and Matt are looking forward to another in person conference in Denver Colorado next year but are thankfully for the year they have had and thankfully to all their guests for this episode.

Mike Ellson, Doug Killgore, Phil Rison, Jason Culler, Masanori Toguchi Jr, Jim Matter, Al Belmondo and Tony Dungy (even though he doesn’t know)

International friends…
