A Coaching Legend



John Wooden died today at the age of 99. It is hard to say anyone was a better college basketball coach than Wooden. He won 10 national championships in 12 seasons at UCLA.

Basketball, however, is not the main reason why I admire Wooden. I like the way he taught his players to be good human beings. He had a great outlook on life. I like his seven-point creed that his father gave to him upon graduation from grammar school:

* Be true to yourself.
* Make each day your masterpiece.
* Help others.
* Drink deeply from good books, especially the Bible.
* Make friendship a fine art.
* Build a shelter against a rainy day.
* Pray for guidance and give thanks for your blessings every day.

You can live a good life following those points. Wooden certainly did.
