Podcast: Trevor Haas (Boston Dot Com, Boston Globe & Duxbury Clipper)

By NoontimeSports.com

As we head into the weekend, it is time to share — and yes, promote — a brand new podcast featuring Trevor Haas, who can be read on Boston.com and through the Boston Globe. Additionally, Haas is a sports editor and reporter for the Duxbury Clipper.

Haas, who has been on the podcast previously, joined host/producer Matt Noonan to discuss an array of topics, including this week’s news of Boston College competing against the University of Alabama in football in 2031 and 2034 to who the next coach of the Boston Celtics should be and why.

The podcast concludes with some hyperlocal sports talk — Haas recaps the content he produced on Duxbury sports at the beginning of the Covid-19 pandemic to the various game coverage and features he has done over the last 10 to 12 months.

Fans of our podcast can listen to the show on Apple Podcasts, Anchor, and Spotify, as well as right here on our blog (below!).

Podcast: James Baker (In The D3FB Huddle)

By NoontimeSports.com

Our old friend (and yes, former co-host for NCAA D-III football coverage in 2018 and 2019) James Baker of In The D3FB Huddle joined our podcast — we recorded the show on Monday, but the show is available now (Tuesday, June 8, 2021).

Baker and host/producer Matt Noonan discussed a variety of topics, including spring football — a handful of Division I teams in the northeast — that is our neck of the woods! — did compete while many Division II and III teams either practiced or scrimmaged a nearby team. Both Baker and Noonan believe the 2021 D-III season should feature some new storylines as most of the student-athletes we covered have graduated or perhaps transferred to another compete at another level.

In addition to some way-too-early D-III football talk — yes, we will have more from Baker and Noonan soon! — the guys also discussed the opening weekend of the Premier Lacrosse League (PLL), an upcoming Pac-12 football game being played mid-morning in early September, and the Boston Red Sox‘s recent sweep of the New York Yankees.

By NoontimeSports.com

On Friday, May 28, 2021, Jamie Gatlin joined Matt Noonan for a brand new Noontime Sports Podcast.

Gatlin, who is an alum of both Emerson College and Suffolk University, began the show discussing the content he creates on the Boston Bruins for Causeway Crowd, which is one of many blogs on FanSided. Additionally, Gatlin and Noonan discuss the first-round series win by the Bruins against the Washington Capitals, as well as the outlook for their upcoming series with the New York Islanders.

In addition to some hockey talk, Gatlin shares why he was interested in becoming a sports journalist — well, more joining a competitive content creation and production world. His writing (and content) has appeared on other platforms, as well, including Prime Time Sports Talk where he has produced stories about minor league baseball players.

The show concludes with Gatlin and Noonan discussing individual player branding and marketing — he is currently assisting TorchPro with social media and content creation on the players they represent.

Noontime Podcast: Michael Williams (Williams Advancement Agency)

By NoontimeSports.com

Happy Monday, everyone — we’re kicking off another busy week of content creation by sharing our latest Noontime Sports Podcast featuring Michael Williams, a coach and founder of the Williams Advancement Agency.

Williams, who has a wealth of coaching experience, shares why he started his own agency last March prior to the beginning of the Covid-19 pandemic. Additionally, Williams and host Matt Noonan discuss how an agency can benefit coaches interested in moving up in the college basketball world.

Said Williams, “The goal was to help coaches network (and) get to know people because this business is all about who knows you, not who you know. And I think that is really important.”

Williams also discussed branding and marketing — yes, branding and marketing for his clients, which is important for prospective players (and fans) to learn more about coaches.
