Varsity Letters PODCAST 10.09.19: SFU basketball’s Steve Hanson, Tweedsmuir football’s Kurt Thornton and Centennial basketball’s Rob Sollero

Thanks for joining us for another episode of Varsity Letters — The Podcast!


Basketball season is just around the corner and with it, the start of another season of the NCAA variety atop Burnaby Mountain.

Simon Fraser Clan head coach Steve Hanson has orchestrated one of the biggest turnarounds in college basketball over the past few seasons and he joins us off the top to talk about an exciting new season ahead in the Great Northwest Athletic Conference.

The VL Pod then heads off to Cloverdale for a chance to talk high school football with Lord Tweedsmuir head coach Kurt Thornton.

So many great things have happened for the Panthers’ program over the past few years, and we talk with coach Thornton about it all, from players to coaches to the new setting in place this season for LT home games!

And to close things, Rob Sollero, coach of the senior boys basketball team at Coquitlam’s Centennial Secondary, chats about the momentum built from his program’s return to the B.C. AAAA tournament last March and all the good things in store this season.
