The Texas Rowing Center in Austin is located in the heart of football country. But all 2015 Fan's Choice Master's Coach of the Year, Mark Borchelt, needs to convert new local athletes to rowing is to get them out on the water.

“This is Texas. This is Texas, where football is football. Football is king in Texas,” Borchelt said. “But when you introduce people to rowing, teach them how to row and they get out there and they feel that boat gliding across the water, they’re hooked.”

Listen to former U.S. national team athlete and two-time Olympian Borchelt talk about coaching in Texas and why he loves doing what he’s doing during an interview prior to the Golden Oars Awards Dinner on Nov. 19.
