Maurides got a first-hand look at different types of leaders during his four-year college football career at Duke University, where he was an offensive lineman under four offensive coordinators, three position coaches, and two head coaches.
Upon graduating, Maurides founded Teamworks, an athlete engagement app currently utilized by over 100 professional sports organizations and more than 250 NCAA Division I athletic departments. He and Clapp touched on the following topics:
