If You Want To Be Successful…

We tell our athletes that if they want to be successful then they should hang around successful people, choose their friends wisely. We would definitely go to a clinic to hear what Pat Summitt has to say. Enjoy!

Patricia "Pat" Head Summitt (born on June 14, 1952) is an American women's college basketball coach. She is currently the head coach of the Tennessee Lady Vols basketball team. She is the all-time winningest coach in NCAA basketball history, men or women, in any division. She has been coaching since 1974, all with the Lady Vols, winning eight NCAA national championships, which is second only to the record 10 titles won by UCLA men's coach John Wooden. Summitt is the only coach in NCAA history, and one of three college coaches overall, with 1,000 victories (Gene Bess of Three Rivers Community College and Harry Statham of McKendree University being the other two). She was named the Naismith Basketball Coach of the Century in April 2000. In 2009, the Sporting News placed her number 11 on its list of the 50 Greatest Coaches of All Time (in all sports); she was the only woman on the list. In 36 years as a coach, she has never had a losing season.

Quote of the week:
"Responsibility equals accountability equals ownership. And a sense
of ownership is the most powerful weapon a team or organization can have."
