Coach John Wooden’s best advice in Bob Kaplitz’ CBS station TV interview in the early 1970s was: “Perform at your best when your best is required. Your best is required each day.”
Kaplitz said what impressed him the most was how unassuming, quiet, and spiritual the coach was Call it “understated” when he was away from the basketball court.
Wooden, who passed away in 2010, was head coach at UCLA. He won ten NCAA national championships in a 12-year period— seven in a row — an unprecedented feat. Within this period, his teams won a record 88 consecutive games. He was named national coach of the year six times.
