Coaches Tuck Radio – Episode 25: Donovan Ford

The Journey. On this week’s episode of Coaches Tuck Radio, Don is joined by Donovan Ford, a 2x Pan Am medalist, 2x World Team member, and just down to earth, real dude.

Having grown up in the foster care system from 6 days old through aging out at 18, we discuss that journey and how it shaped the person Donovan is today. Additionally, as a 12 year veteran in the sport of weightlifting, we discuss dealing with injuries, and navigating the current quad in order to maximize what will most likely be his last.

Lastly, we touch on what a coach means to him and at what stage in his career did he feel the most development not as an athlete, but as a young man.

Strap in, listen, and enjoy the ride!
