On this episode, Angie interviews Bradley Beal, of the Washington Wizards to discuss his desire to be one of the NBA's best players and help younger players from his hometown St. Louis. He discusses his legacy and advice for young players wanting to play at the highest level. 

The NBA star and former Chaminade College Prep star has decided to partner with the St. Louis Eagles, his former NIKE EYBL team, resulting in a new name for the high school boys teams, Bradley Beal Elite.

This new partnership includes Beal working directly with players, assisting with program expansion, training for coaches, coaching when time permits and community service initiatives. 

Beal was the 2011 Gatorade National Player of the Year and McDonald's All-American. Beal was selected by the Wizards with the third overall pick in the 2012 draft from the University of Florida. He played with the St. Louis Eagles from 2008-2010 in Nike’s Elite Youth Basketball League competing against the top prep basketball players in the country.
