In my job as the host of Coaches’ Corner, I get to interview high school athletes from the area. What a difference it is interviewing these student athletes today than when I started over 30 years ago.Today the athletes are not afraid of the microphone nor are they at a loss for words. Only occasionally one of these athletes has to hesitate before they give an answer. Students today are so much more involved in many activities that they feel at ease in most situations. I can still remember an early interview when I asked a young man how it felt to score the winning basket at a regional game. He simply smiled and nodded his head. I do not remember the second question but he again nodded his head. All I could do was take a commercial break. During that break I informed the young man that this was radio and the people couldn’t see him nodding. I said “you have to speak up”. That certainly isn’t a problem today.
