S1: Ep. 8 | Off The Court Podcast ft. Michael Thomas

Monday, June 13, 2022

Former Rainbow Warrior Men’s Basketball player and recent addition to UH staff as an Assistant Coach for the men’s team, Michael Thomas, joins host James for this week’s episode of the “Off The Court” podcast.

From embracing the responsibility of being in the public eye and representing for the people of Hawai’i, to then navigating the pressure and noise that can come from being in the spotlight, Mike brings us into the headspace of his career playing for UH and how he eventually saw a career path in coaching for his alma mater.

Listen in to this incredibly insightful conversation as Mike reflects with James about the importance of breaking down the game mentally, understanding financial management as a student-athlete and its indirect correlation to your fitness and nutritional health, and what up-and-coming elite athletes should prioritize in the recruitment process of playing at the next level.
