(more original CSB360 video and team-based video links on the way)
... CSB360 founder Pete LaFleur was in the Tuscaloosa vicinity a few months before the 2012 college softball season, while covering the men's and women's NCAA College Cup final weekends for sister site CollegeSoccer360.com ... coach Murphy graciously took time to conduct a video interview, in anticipation for the future launch of CollegeSoftball360.com.
Note that coach Murphy is a bit soft-spoken in this 2-part interview, but we've made some audio volume adjustments. His comments cover the following range of topics:
• The importance of fall workouts & conditioning.
• Vital softball support staff.
• Two key "milepost" moments in the Alabama softball program history.
• The softball program's community outreach approach.
• The background that led him to where he is today.
• The family atmosphere within the program.
• His recruiting philosophy, the program's style of play, etc.
• Recollecting the 2011 Alabama tornadoes & student-athletes from Notre Dame who volunteered in the relief effort.
• Snapshot of his team's 2012 personnel.
• And, finally, the team's ultimate goal of winning a national championship.
