The legendary Tony Hawk is one of the most down-to-earth athletes I’ve ever interviewed. It’s not surprising that this cutting-edge dude runs a multi-billion dollar empire, or that he has 1.5 million followers on Twitter. http://www.clickoncarlsbad.com/Stories/hawk.html
I interviewed former Chargers punter Darren Bennett last week–what a cool guy! He and his wife run a great foundation in the San Diego area and he’s still helping bring Aussie punters into the NFL. Bennett is responsible for introducing the pooch punt into the league. I’ll post the article once it’s published:)
