"It's got to be the shoes!"
This week we welcome the head coach/owner of D-Force Elite TC Ryan Dukes to the show. He describes a wonderful high school experience and how that affected him moving forward to college and beyond. A Bachelor's of Fine Arts major, Ryan thought his life would lead him to designing shoes for Nike, Adidas and the like, yet his college coach saw something in him before he could see it. Helping him join a summer track club staff, his college coach started his professional journey that continues today. And don't worry, the shoe passion hasn't left him as he owns his own shoe design company where he designs custom shoes for people like Justin Fields, Mel Tucker, and more.
Strap up your shoes, get your Jordan's, and let's learn from Ryan Dukes on today's episode of the Gill Connections podcast.
