Canada’s George Gortsos, during his long international playing career, was for years one of the best ball hockey players on the planet – and he’s without doubt the most successful coach in world ball hockey history. With unmatched knowledge of the game’s skills and systems, personal passion & intensity – and an unmistakable gravel-in-a-blender voice – Coach G is the source when it comes to being the best. Currently, GG continues to advise Canada’s national ball hockey teams as High Performance Director for the Canadian Ball Hockey Association. He also gets in a weekly game in a Toronto rec ball hockey league at Withrow Park.
Best Player in the World caught up with the Coach after a recent rec-league outing. In this exclusive two-part interview, George waxes eloquent on making it to the top, great ball hockey players he’s known, his fave ice hockey stars (and movie stars!), and – yes – his “Czech friends.” Watch & enjoy.
