A Legend Passes
Coach John Wooden

“Make everyday your masterpiece”

Coach Wooden will be remembered for his 10 NCAA Basketball Championships, including an unprecedented 7 in a row, along with his 620 total wins including 88 straight.  But I’ll remember Coach Wooden for teaching athletes prior to each season how to properly put on their socks and shoes to avoid getting blisters.

Mastering the basics.

Now there’s a novel idea that all athletic trainers and strength coaches can apply when dealing with athletes.

Thanks John.
