A few things to listen for in this podcast:

The intro! Both the intro and exit were actually recorded for us by Ryan Powell himself. Over the course of this interview, we found out RP’s childhood dream was to be a sports broadcaster, so we couldn’t help but ask him to help us produce this first podcast!

Love for Portland. Powell and his family love the Portland area, and that’s a big part of why Rhino Lacrosse has had such a big impact on the community. Commitment is everything!

The Rhino offering. Powell has made Rhino Lacrosse the leading instructional company in Oregon by offering a great mix of high quality products to young lacrosse players. It all starts with hard work and a commitment to improving players one-by-one.

Rhino Bootcamps. This is a concept I’ve grown to admire. The inclusion of Nike Sparq Training and intense stick work make for great crash-course in lacrosse for beginners and advanced players alike.

Brett Favre who? I ask Ryan about his playing career and get some solid intel on his status as a professional lacrosse player.

Woozle talk. Don’t miss the part where I ask RP to join the Woozles Lacrosse Club at Lake Tahoe next summer. I think he’s afraid to wear pink!

Dicky V! Ever wondered who the next Dick Vitale might be? I’m putting my money on Ryan Powell after hearing the impression he gives at the end of our podcast.
