YAZOO PODCAST: Mike Vrabel and his high school coach share some of Vrabel's origin story

YAZOO podcast stripeNASHVILLE, Tenn. -- You can learn a lot about a guy by learning about where he came from.

That was the thinking behind this week's podcast: An intimate visit with Mike Vrabel and Gerry Rardin, his coach from Walsh Jesuit High School in Cuyahoga Falls, Ohio.

The two talked Madison Blevins and I through Vrabel's 7-2 senior season, how an all-boys school helped shape him, his life as an only-child, Taco Day in Rardin's Spanish class, how students at a public school 20 minutes from home burned his dad's office there down and the lure of Notre Dame and Michigan before Vrabel decided to attend Ohio State.


Despite my attempts to get him to swear, Vrabel wouldn't use the full power of the forum.

Part 1, like podcast versions of my public Periscope and Facebook Lives, is available through iTunes, here, or directly through the Vokal website, here. Feel free to hook us up with a rating and review on iTunes.
