CHAMPIONS FOR LIFE – TAFT GANTT & COACH CHRIS METZGER

High School sophomore & Pinehurst resident Taft Gantt attends Woodberry Forest School and talks about his passion for sports and the industry of sports.

Currently Taft is vice chairman of WFSPN, a student run network where he broadcasts school sporting events as well as writing a blog revolving around the athletic department.

Pinecrest Patriot head coach Chris Metzger joins Taft to talk about his 11 year tenure at Pinecrest; his Champions for Life program, as well as the methodology of coaching his staff has put in place to raise well rounded individuals, whether they go on to participate in college sports or not.

His life lessons and observations provide a great insight into why the Pinecrest program has been so successful since 2007.

Taft Gantt, in many ways, embodies the result of what Coach Metzger preaches; dedication, passion, discipline, focus and serving others before self.
