While Dustin McKenna is definitely one of the nicest guys in the Hudl office, he also has a knack for keeping everyone in line. That’s not to say he’s bossy by any means, but just knowing you’re in a shared space with an Army platoon leader is enough to make anyone behave.
The intimidation ends there, though. Unless you’re a duck, Dustin is totally harmless.
“Born and raised in Papillion, Neb., I played baseball all through high school and continue my playing days now with @getwet3, officially sponsored by C. Berry’s. I attended the University of Nebraska, worked with the Nebraska gymnastics program for two years, and graduated in December 2011. I was a part of Army ROTC and am now a platoon leader in a cavalry troop. I also love the outdoors, especially duck hunting. I started with Hudl in January 2012, and have been helping coaches dominate ever since.”
