Memories from an icon lost
Wooden Remembered Bas Heal
The following column was written by long-time Southeast Bulloch coach Mike Sparks about his thoughts on and experience with legendary UCLA basketball coach John Wooden, who passed away Friday in Los Angeles at the age of 99. As a senior at Georgia Southern College in the spring of 1974, I was blessed to experience an unforgettable memory that is one of my most precious. As a member of a coaching basketball class that was required for my Physical Education degree, we were asked to assemble a coaching notebook with all of the drills, articles and information we could collect from various sources.
