Harrison Phillips: Unscripted with Dawn Mitchell

This week on Unscripted with Dawn Mitchell, Dawn sits down with Vikings defensive tackle Harrison Phillips who is entering his third year with the Vikings. In 79 career games, Phillips has amassed 229 total tackles, 104 solo with 125 assists. He’s also registered six sacks and six plays defended. But there is so much more to “Horrible Harry” than his powerful play on the field. Phillips was the Vikings' nomination for the prestigious Walter Payton Man of the Year Award last season. He is tireless when it comes to giving back. Harrison’s successful charity organization “Harrison’s Playmakers” is on a mission to cultivate strong families across Minnesota, helping them to become empowered in order to improve the health and quality of life for their children and families, especially youth dealing with special health care needs and disabilities. Phillips also talks to Dawn about the emotions of going back to his native Nebraska and helping with tornado relief efforts and what work needed to be done to help those in need. In this unscripted interview, Harrison Phillips shows he is extraordinary both on and off the gridiron.

Ryan Saunders: Unscripted with Dawn Mitchell

A few months ago in preparation for this show, Dawn Mitchell had a great conversation with former Timberwolves Head Coach Ryan Saunders, who just so happens to be an assistant coach with the Denver Nuggets. Who would've known when they sat down that the Wolves and the Nuggets would be amid the Western Conference Semifinals against the defending NBA champions right now – and with the Wolves with the series lead. This interview is also a nod to Ryan's father, Flip Saunders. Dawn and Ryan talk about the emotions of winning an NBA championship last year without his dad — and for his dad. Ryan may be working in Denver now, but his heart always remains in Minnesota. Here's Dawn Mitchell with Ryan Saunder ... Unscripted.

Reeve and Knox talk about the impact and how that will hopefully affect the upcoming WNBA season. Reeve is also the Head Coach of USA Basketball – so this conversation ranges from the Caitlin Clark effect and the WNBA– to the Olympics in Paris, as well as what it is like for Reeve and Knox to be a married couple working together in the high powered business of professional sports.
