sport experts Coach Russell Raypon and Anahit Hovhannisyan in AS Friday.

Last July 1, Adrenaline Solutions, gathered once again for AS Friday, the monthly meeting for reconnecting and unwinding. This time the guests include sport experts Coach Russell Raypon and Anahit Hovhannisyan.

Coach Russell is a credentialed school psychologist in Fresno, CA. He has spent over 20 years coaching youth and high school basketball teams. He is father to a happy family and his beloved dog, Max. Coach Russell regularly offers sports coaching insights on this website as well as contributing to the best-selling book, Winning Still.

Anahit hails from Armenia. She is a Project Manager who has taken the lead in projects like the Online Sports Leadership Program: A Podcast. She was a strong chess player when she was younger; having competed and won in tournaments in her Caissa-loving country

The two shared how they dealt with the many changes in their lives. Anahit talked about why she left competitive chess while Coach Russell discussed his reasons for moving to the Philippines and devoting his time to sports development in Adrenaline Solutions. In Anahit’s case, she was discovering other stuff that she wanted to try and do. For Coach Russell, he made the decision because he wants to offer sports mentorship to more people who really need it.

Their stories brought out team discussions and helped the team grow closer, which were the goals of the event. 

AS Friday is held near the end of a month and features an influential guest from the sports world.
