Torg Stories Podcast: Coaching Your Kids

Kent Chezem on the Torg Stories Podcast March 12th, 2020 Edition

In the midst of all this coronavirus news, I’m joined by my friend Kent Chezem. With stops including Clinton Prairie, Covington, and Loogootee, Kent has spent 25 years as a head boys basketball coach in the state of Indiana. His teams have won over 300 games and four sectional titles. Kent and I were teammates at Olivet Nazarene University where he is the all time leader in assists.

Kent was named the District 2 Coach of the Year by the Indiana Basketball Coaches Association in 2014. Kent’s wife Dara became the Superintendent of Schools in the district where I went to high school, Eastern Pulaski Schools in Winamac.

This edition of Torg Stories is a basketball-centric podcast. We spend a fair amount of time talking about issues related to coaching our kids.

The Torg Stories podcast is also available on iTunes.

Hope you enjoy!

  1. I was sold on the intro. Breakfast Club and Weird Science movies lines, can’t beat that. Lol Very Nice. I also found out I play Pickleball with a former player of yours, Jason Yocum. He still thinks highly of you. Great job on podcast. Good to hear Cheese on podcast.


    • Yocum! He never washed his practice jersey and it would stand up on its own by the end of the season. He also had a Shaq inspired haircut with sideburns only. Ask him what kind of music he was into then? I miss him! Tell him I said hello.
