Bobby Knight was a leader who wanted to go beyond winning to produce players and teams that reached or exceeded their potential.  His purpose extended to the classroom. Nearly all of his players graduated, a rare achievement in college sports teams.

I won 1,098 games and national championship and coached in four different decades. But I do not see the numbers, I see the faces that made this happen.~~ Pat Summit

“I would like to be remembered as a man who won the heavyweight title three times,  who never looked down on those who looked up to him, who helped as many people as he could, who stood up for his beliefs no matter what, and who tried to unite all humankind through faith and love. And I wouldn’t even mind if folks forgot how pretty I was.” ~~Muhamad Ali

 Final Thought on the Power of Professional Sports

“Unfortunately the world is what it is. People don’t get along for whatever reason. As professional athletes, in a way we’re ambassadors for peace because sports brings everyone together. ~~Venus Williams
