The Coast Guard men’s basketball team had a great recruiting class in place. But now those cadets had to survive the rigors and challenges of the Academy.

And that’s not easy.

In this episode, we look at what the Coast Guard Academy is like – from the introductory phase of Swab Summer to heavy courseloads and military requirements (right down to having a perfectly-made bed).

And we look at the foundation that was set by the coaching staff over the next two basketball seasons.


A Lasting Legacy is a multi-part audio documentary that remembers the amazing and improbable runs of the 2006-07 and 2007-08 Coast Guard Academy men’s basketball team.

It’s based on 40 interviews with former players, coaches, rivals, and others.

The podcast is written, hosted, edited, and produced by Mark Simon.
