Pat Summitt died earlier this week. She was one of the greatest coaches in the history of college basketball, and maybe sports in general, but when you hear people talk about her they rarely bring up the coaching aspects. They tend to bring up the personal side, the barriers she broke through, and the doors she opened for others. One thing I didn’t know until the recent news coverage is that every player she coached at Tennessee that completed their eligibility graduated, which may be the most impressive stat of all.
“It’s harder to stay on top than it is to make the climb, Continue to seek new goals.” – Pat Summitt
