Few and Far Between.

John Wooden passed away earlier this evening at the age of 99. I'm trying to pick words to say but honestly it's hard. As most of you know, we love sports. And, honestly, I don't think I could think of another man or woman that idealizes all of the good things about sports. He won 10 National Championships at UCLA as their head basketball coach in the 1970's and won over 600 games. In his 27 seasons at the school, he never earned more than $35,000. In addition to athletics, Wooden is known for his Pyramid of Success and his devout faith. John Wooden was recently named the Greatest Coach of All-Time.

"I always tried to make clear that basketball is not the ultimate. It is of small importance in comparison to the total life we live. There is only one kind of life that truly wins, and that is the one that places faith in the hands of the Savior. Until that is done, we are on an aimless course that runs in circles and goes nowhere."

RIP Coach John Wooden
