Derrick Murphy

Derrick Murphy aka D. Murph is someone who has always been a vocal leader since he remembers. From his days as the captain of his basketball teams to his leadership positions in the corporate world, Derrick has used sports as a way to bring people together for one common goal. After years of not being able to display his creative side in the workforce, Derrick got tired of being sick and tired and wanted to see a major change. Later, all his life experiences from sports to the real world started making sense and that’s when his award winning podcast WhyNotSports was born. He talks about the good, bad and ugly of sports and how it impacts your everyday life.
