Press Box Podcast: Central Valley’s Freddie Rehkow fortunate to be a part of ‘one of the best teams ever’

From staff reports

On Thursday, Central Valley girls basketball coach Freddie Rehkow chatted with Larry Weir, host of The Spokesman-Review’s Press Box Podcast, to discuss the magical 2017-18 season, a year that produced a national title for the Bears and national coach of the year honors for Rehkow.

“As a coach, you hope it’s not a once-in-a lifetime but, absolutely was one of those groups that will go down as one of the best teams ever. Fortunately, for me, I got to be a part of that.

“It was a dream group, that’s for sure.”

Following are excerpts. You can find the entire interview at the end of the post, as well as the rest of our “The Press Box, with Larry Weir” podcats here.
