Shea Underwood isn’t a Pickleball professional yet.  But he is well on his way to achieving his goal after being a football kicker at Georgia Tech University.  We really cover a lot of ground in this interview but I think Shea has a really great perspective on developing a system to play Pickleball when competing at high levels in the sport.  This is really one of my favorite interviews as we talk about Shea’s journey to becoming a professional Pickleball player.
