Listen Now to Episode 6 - Featuring Pac 12 Network's Yogi Roth

In the sixth edition of Up Close In Personnel with Alex Brown, we covered it all! Yogi Roth, a former Pitt WR, USC QB Coach, Elite 11 Producer, current Pac 12 Networks Football Analyst, Podcast-extraordinaire and down-to-earth, genuine family man, absolutely brings the heat!

We cover it all with regards to evaluating, recruiting, why it's so important to truly have a love for this game and how the recruiting landscape has changed for quarterbacks!

There's so much to unpack in this episode, but one line stuck out above the rest for me personally when Yogi said:

"My biggest opportunity, and my biggest responsibility, is to live and listen like my life depends on it"

With that said, I wanted to bring more in-depth show notes to you all as the listener and will provide a timeline guide for each show moving forward! Enjoy!
