"Promoting education based athletics in Indiana"

So many great teams have great leadership from their coaches, and you can always tell how much trust the athletes have in those that are good leaders by how hard they play and how well they listen.

Tony Bennett. coach of this year's NCAA basketball champion Virginia, showed his poise and composure as Virginia trailed in each of the final three games inside the ten second mark, yet never missed a beat and won every game.

After winning, Coach Bennett saved his best words for last as he told his team the following while meeting with them in the locker room. He said "Put your arms around each other, take a look at every guy in here, look at each other.  Promise me you will remain humble and thankful for this. Don't let this change you."

Great advice from a humble and caring coach!
