Success is a Choice

Dec 31, 2022

This interview is from Father's Day Weekend 2022. We never intended for this episode to be released on our audio network as it was a live interview on YouTube but with our guest having such a great football season, we thought we’d release it today. Jason Candle is the coach of the University of Toledo football team and this year they won the Mid-American Conference Championship and defeated Liberty in the Boca Raton Bowl. We ran into Coach Candle back in June at the Fatherhood Festival at the Pro Football Hall of Fame. He had brought his leadership council to help out with the event. The interview took place outside with a lot of other things going on around us but the insights are still good and I think you’ll get a sense as to one of the reasons Toledo football had the season that they did. We hope you enjoy this brief interview with Coach Jason Candle from the University of Toledo.

Coach Candle has won more than 60% of his game since taking over the reins of the Rocket program in 2015. He brought his player leadership council to the event as volunteers. This was a homecoming of sorts for Candle as he played on two NCAA Division III National Championship teams as a Wide Receiver at nearby Mount Union College.

Some of the athletes in attendance at this event included Anthony Munoz, Mike Singletary, Ben Garland, Ed McCaffrey, Christian McCaffrey, David Tyree, and Shaun Alexander. Some of the event's organizers included Justin Blatt, Michael Munoz, Darrin Gray, and Rachel Joy Baribeau.

The "Success is a Choice" podcast is made possible by Great teams have great teammates and is helping build strong team cultures through the development of positive leaders and better teammates.
