Since then, Fitzsimmons’ steady climb has included shows in his home state of Louisiana, Alabama and Texas. And now, he’s a regular for ESPN Radio.

From stories of working sidelines for big college football games to the sports talk topic tree, and more, Fitzsimmons hits on all of it in this episode of the PASR.
