I Went Down To The River

There is value in high school football that goes beyond wins and losses. Team sports build relationships, work ethic, character development, and teamwork.

Listen in as Dan Walton (Assistant Football Coach at Hawken School, located in Northeast Ohio) interviews fellow Hawken alum about their time within the football program, and how it has impacted their personal and professional lives all these years later.

Each episode contains stories and shared memories that may or may not be from your actual teammates, but the common experiences and lessons shared will resonate with all. As writer Devon Barnhard states, "shared memories simply gives a team a common experience to look back on and share together. There even becomes shared words and language that gets associated with the experience and memory".1
