A bit about John Wooden ...

John Robert Wooden (born October 14, 1910, in Martinsville, Indiana) is a member of the Basketball Hall of Fame as both a player (Class of 1961) and a coach (Class of 1973). He was the first person ever enshrined in both categories; only Lenny Wilkens and Bill Sharman have since been so honored. He is often regarded as the greatest college coach in history and his 10 NCAA National Championships while at UCLA are unmatched.

This quote is incorrectly given to Wooden, but came from Heywood Broun as sports writer when Wooden was growing up and playing college ball.
