Diamondbacks' Mike Hazen and Torey Lovullo Speak at Power Breakfast
Brophy hosted its 19th annual Power Breakfast on Feb. 6, with Mike Hazen and Torey Lovullo of the Diamondbacks as the guest speakers, along with emcee Sean McLaughlin from CBS5/3TV. Mike is the executive vice president and general manager of the 26-year-old Phoenix MLB franchise, and Torey is the manager. They talked about the challenges and successes of the last few seasons, including the team's trip to the World Series in 2023; how crucial strong, consistent and loving leadership is to any team; and how Brophy's athletics help guide their students toward becoming those kinds of leaders. Athletic Director Josh Garcia ’07 also spoke, leaving the audience with this great takeaway: "Opposing teams can plan for how we play but not for who we are."
Charlie Hazen ’24 was the student speaker and received a standing ovation for his heartfelt account of overcoming adversity and finding his place in the Bronco baseball program.
Proceeds from the event will go toward enhancements of Brophy's sports facilities. Donations can be made here.
