Billy D on Wooden


Florida coach Billy Donovan, on the passing of John Wooden at 99:

“John Wooden was a great coach and a great man.  He was a man of humility who embodied the best of character and values, and exemplified what coaching is all about. I was fortunate enough to be honored with the Wooden Award in April, an award that now takes on added significance to me personally. I found out that I was being honored on his 99th birthday. To have the opportunity to go out to Los Angeles and see firsthand how great an impact he still has is something I will always be honored and humbled to be a part of. His legacy will endure forever.”
