By Sean Duncan
Executive Director

The collective talent at the 15th Annual Super 60 was impressive, especially given it was early February. Already, National Supervisor Nathan Rode wrote about his personal highlights, in addition to our first PBR Podcast that covered the Super 60 at length.

Here, I look at my personal revelations from several individual performances on Sunday.
