DETROIT (JSC) — What Up Doe, people! It’s Thanksgiving week and the People’s Podcast is coming to y’all with some rare Tuesday goodness from the home base: Detroit, MI. But the big wheel keeps on turning and this week the show welcomes a new guest.
Her name is Renee Washington. At 25, she’s already lived a life that most of us couldn’t have dreamed of. She’s a three-time former All-American Soccer player at LaSalle University in Philadelphia. Coming from an athletic family — her father and two older sisters were basketball players — Renee set scoring records at LaSalle, as she currently second all-time in goals scored (40), third all-time in points (101), and seventh in assists (21). She helped lead the team to three NCAA Tournaments. After graduating from LaSalle, she briefly played professionally before coaching at Lehigh University.
Now, she has made the transition into broadcasting, working as a reporter, anchor, and color commentator for the Ivy League Network. She is the epitome of hustle, and she joins us this week to talk about the transition over to broadcast as well as her life in soccer and why, in the end, it wasn’t for her.
Renee’s interview begins at the 25:30 mark of the show for those looking to get right to it.
Coming up on Episode No. 57 of JSC Radio:
- What drew Renee to Soccer
- Why Soccer, despite its best efforts, has not taken hold in the United States
- The differences between playing in the States and playing Overseas
- Did she ever attempt to play for the National team
- What led her to leave soccer and come into broadcasting
- The toughest part of working in this industry.
- What is her favorite moment as an Explorer
- Plus: I talk about Detroit Thanksgiving traditions, the Lions, and…are the Pistons actually…decent!?
