An American original, his great legacy of positive influence lives on.

A great article from John Feinstein: John Wooden: Untouchable record, incomparable man

Why dink around? Go for it, be the best. It is worth whatever risk there is even if you fall short. You will be better.

A lot of aspects of coaching transcend the sport. Recruiting and motivating your athletes, becoming a student of your sport, knowing when to work and rest your athletes. Things like these are things that a successful coach in any sport have a great ability to do. Wooden had those things. A lot of coaches, in basketball, running, and any other sport could learn a lot by studying his works.
