Finding Your True North with Tony Lipani

Your True North

When was the last time you were hit between the eyes?  Like the scene from the movie Gerry McGuire. Tom Cruise leaves his current employer to follow his own True North. This is what Finding Your True North is all about.

The Podcast is about finding happiness in your life……about following your instincts and taking the risk in life.  I remember when I took over the Aquinas Football Program as a 25-year-Old Head coach.  As I prepared for my first game leading as a Head Coach, I purposely planned to onside kick after our first touchdown.  Every single player on our team knew this.  We practiced it every day for 14 days and sure enough it happened as planned.  We scored a touchdown, onside kicked and recovered the ball!

I took the risk that day…. just like my other Podcast Heart Attack at age 45 Alive.  I haven’t released a new episode in 36 months but on Christmas Day 2019 we had 25 downloads bringing the download total close to 30,000 around the world.  That means 30,000 people have listened to me tell my story with my only intention of helping them recover from a Heart Attack.

Please take the time to listen to this new show,  I promise that I won’t let you down as we all Find Your True North together!

The NFL announced the high school football coaches nominated by the 32 NFL teams for the Don Shula NFL High School Coach of the Year Award.

These coaches were recognized by their local NFL club for the prestigious award — named after Pro Football Hall of Famer Don Shula, the winningest coach in NFL history — for their character, integrity, leadership, dedication to the community, commitment to player protection and on-field success.

“There are so many coaches across the country who do such great work with their student-athletes and I am truly honored to be selected for this prestigious award,” said 2018 Don Shula NFL High School Coach of the Year winner Gabe Infante upon receiving his award. “I am grateful to the NFL and the committee for my consideration.”  

All Don Shula Award nominees are invited to attend the 2020 Pro Bowl in Orlando, Fla. and will be recognized during the NFL’s week-long celebration of football. Coaches will have VIP access and accommodations at events including Pro Bowl practices and the Play Football High School Skills Showdown, a chance to interact with members of the football community and attend the Pro Bowl.
