Myerscough Basketball has released Episode 8 of SCO: The Podcast, which is titled “Mi Jefe” and features the architect of the Academy, Neal Hopkins.
A (student union) president, a lettings negotiator and a legal administrator. Emmanuel Kabengele, Alex Roberts and Cian Hickey all had their own reasons to forgo the American basketball dream and pursue degrees at prestigious universities based in England, carving their own paths in the process.
The road isn't always easy for a student-athlete, full stop. Mikey Irvine and Myerscough alum Kiko Stavrev and Zion Tordoff share how they overcame their own personal obstacles and challenges throughout their development on the way to success.
It's a Scottish flavour as Allen welcomes a panel of guests hailing from north of the border, including Celina Eisenhardt, Myerscough alum Callan Low and the McGlasson Family.
