VL podcast 10.28.20 edition: St. Thomas More teacher/coach and podcaster Aaron Mitchell takes us on ‘A Hoops Journey’

Welcome to the Varsity Letters podcast for Wednesday, Oct. 28.

Our guest this week might be the only person to have led a B.C. senior boys basketball team to a provincial title as a head coach, while also having played in a B.C. senior boys hoops varsity final, a CCAA national final, and a U Sports Final 8 national final.

All that said, St. Thomas More Knights head coach Aaron Mitchell, a proud Terry Fox, Capilano, Langara and Brandon alum, is also a fine broadcaster in his own right, launching A Hoops Journey this past May (with producer Corbin Castres), a podcast which gets inside the basketball lives of so many who have left an imprint on the game in B.C.

Mitchell joins host Howard Tsumura to chat about all things basketball, education and life.
