With the college basketball season about to get underway, Dan Engelstad, the first-year coach at Mount St. Mary’s, is the guest this week on the Final Score podcast.

Engelstad tells host Greg Swatek how he is settling into the job after being hired in May to replace Jamion Christian. He talks about the unique makeup of his team without a junior or true senior on the roster, and he explains why he feels his team has so much potential despite expectations being really low this season. The Mountaineers were picked to finish last in the 10-team Northeast Conference by the league’s coaches.

Plus, FNP sports writer Joe Ferraro stops by to offer his thoughts on the boys soccer and football playoffs. He and Greg run down the Frederick County teams that are still in the running for a state title in all of the fall sports.

The Finals Score is presented by Players Fitness and Performance (PFP).
