John Robert Wooden is the most decorated coaches of any sport anywhere in the world. He transformed not only the world of sports but he helped to transform the lives of hundreds of young men that came into his basketball program at The University of California at Los Angeles (UCLA).
His mark on the sport and on the hearts and minds of these former student-athletes will be remembered throughout all of history. He truly had the heart of a champion.
He is well remembered for his rules and the disciple he excepted out of himself but also his players. He was there for them and they knew it. He had a love for the game that was second to his love of teaching.
