Sports Loses One Of Its All-Time Greats: There Will Never Be Another John Wooden!!!

NCAA Basketball: DePaul vs. UCLA
I could, as so many are, easily feature the extraordinary and unparalleled accomplishments of Coach John Wooden.

Possibly elaborate on how few coaches today, perhaps few men, could ever come close to establishing and encouraging the sound philosophical principles for which Coach Wooden was known.

Maybe even detail his life story based on the numerous accounts of a life that was truly worth living as he gave back to all ten times more than he gained.

However, I think it best to let the Coach speak for himself as his own inspirational words tell a story of a man unsurpassed in thought, unequaled in wisdom.

As Steve Jamison (co-author of My Personal Best) puts it:

"...simply, he's an American icon who has been hailed as 'The Greatest Coach of the 20th Century' and awarded the Presidential Medal of Freedom at the White House."

And Rick Reilly (Sports Illustrated) was quoted as saying:

"There has never been a finer coach in American sports than John Wooden. Nor a finer man."

Nothing more to be said, other than

Thanks John Wooden!!!
