Podcast with Papa Swags

I think all of us carry on something that our parents gave to us. From my father, it's a love for sports, and from both of my parents, detailed organization skills and a knack for thinking ahead.

This is just a little peek into the legendary Papa Swags, sharing his experiences in sports directing over the past four decades. Fitting that the California Interscholastic Federation (CIF) awarded him with their prestigious Distinguished Service Award this past week.

I love that this picture of him in his office has my sister's and my volleyball photos on his wall behind him. We miss being in the gym with you, too, Dad. No one is more deserving of this honor than you!!!

Please enjoy this podcast with my very own father, Dan Swagerty: the man behind the whole reason I ever touched a volleyball.
