Strong By Design Podcast

Mar 8, 2023


Patric Young is a former professional American basketball player and current ESPN college basketball analyst but he is so much more than that… Patric is a Kingdom man. 

Our world is changing before our eyes and there seems to be a shortage of strong men showing up at home for their families and in their communities. So, when Strong By Design encounters these game changers, we like to find out what makes them tick. 

Beyond Patric’s amazing basketball success and broadcasting career is something much richer and life changing. Following his tragic accident last year leaving him in a wheelchair, he is helping those paralyzed by fear live in the now 

In his words, “I had to sit to walk.” 


“They see the 10% of the iceberg, but then there’s 90% of all the things you don’t see… They don’t see the sacrifice, the tears, the blood, the failures, and the things that led up to that 10%.” - Patric Young
