Pat Harrison: Choosing College vs Choosing Pros

Pat Harrison is no stranger to college tennis. In fact, he played four years himself before turning to coaching full-time. That said, when his two sons – Ryan and Christian – were fairly young, Pat knew they were headed for a life on the professional tour, trading a college education for the school of life instead.

Pat’s youngest, a daughter named Madison, is a different story. Madison announced earlier this Spring that she is headed to the University of Kansas to be a Jayhawk and to play for coach Todd Chapman in Lawrence. Choosing the college route over professional tennis was the right decision for Madison, according to her dad. Hear why when Pat chatted with me at the NCAAs this week.
