PCA recently hosted Northwestern Head Football Coach Pat Fitzgerald on the Power of Positive Podcast, powered by Tipevo.

On PCA’s new Power of Positive podcast, powered by Tipevo (@TipevoHQ) PCA connects with athletes, coaches, and business leaders within the PCA community to discuss topics in youth and high school sports, leadership development, culture and of course...the Power of Positive!

This Power of Positive Podcast interview features Pat Fitzgerald (@coachfitz51), Head Football Coach for Northwestern University’s Football Team and PCA National Advisory Board Member.

Jason Sacks (@jrsacks22), EVP of Business Development and Philanthropy for PCA, speaks with Fitzgerald about all things culture, youth football, and being a sports parent.

More insights from this podcast include:

  • Fitzgerald's continued evolution and eye towards improvement as a coach.
  • How to reset, re-energize, and re-focus on the sidelines during the game.
  • Recruiting in college football and advice for parents and student-athletes on that process.
  • What the power of positive means for Coach Fitz — being positive is a cornerstone of the Northwestern Football program.
