The third guest of the “Overtime” podcast is Mandy McGlynn, a storied women’s soccer goalie at Virginia Tech who just finished up her senior year.
Wyatt and I could go on and on about McGlynn’s accolades: second team all state, two-time All-ACC First Team goalkeeper, the list continues. Instead of focusing on the X’s and O’s on the pitch, we engaged in a candid and upbeat conversation with McGlynn you won’t want to miss.
First, we covered McGlynn’s past and her road to Virginia Tech. After several Division 1 schools recruited her, she was finally drawn to the culture of Virginia Tech.
Not only was McGlynn drawn to Hokie culture, but also the pressure of being the “quarterback” of soccer. She welcomes pressure in all forms and embraced it through the recruiting process.
McGlynn shared her favorite stories about her head coach Charles “Chugger” Adair and her reasoning behind why she eats a doughnut every time she gets a shutout. All that and more on Episode No. 3 of “Overtime.”
