John Wooden is simply the most successful basketball coach in the history of the sport. In his 40 years as a head coach, Wooden compiled an unparalleled 885-203 overall career win-loss record (.813). Wooden's UCLA teams registered 620 wins and only 147 losses, won a record 10 NCAA championships, and achieved one of the most amazing winning streaks in all of sports with 38 straight NCAA tournament victories. His Bruin teams also set the all-time NCAA record by winning 88 straight games over four seasons, including consecutive 30-0 seasons in 1971-72 and 1972-73.
As a high school basketball player at Martinsville, Indiana, Wooden won all-state honors three consecutive years. At Purdue University, he won letters in basketball and baseball his freshman year and later earned All-American honors as a guard on the basketball team from 1930 to 1932. He captained Purdue's basketball teams of 1931 and 1932 and led the Boilermakers to two Big Ten titles and the 1932 national championship.

He was the ABA Rookie of the Year, and he is the only player in the history of professional basketball to lead all three leagues in rebounding.
After his playing career, Nater served as athletic director for 9 years at Christian Heritage College, where he also coached the basketball team to a national title.

Coach Woodens-Piramid of Success Feb 5, 2006
Having read several of Jay Carty's books now I have to say he is an incredibly inspiring writer and person to say the least. I am so excited each month as I check for new "stuff" from Jay Carty as it is always refreshing and different yet always connected to God with a three stranded cord. If you haven't been a reader of his books for long there are many to choose from and this writer never stops searching for Gods will in his daily efforts to continue to provide hearty reading material for all groups and all stages from salvation, and growth to a mature level of one's spiritual walk. I highly recommend anything he puts his hands on because I know the hand of God is on him. Some of what I have read and or listened to on tape are:"Discovering your natural talents", "Counter Attack: taking back ground lost to sin", "Playing with fire", "Something's fishy Getting rid of the carp in your life","Coach Wooden One on One", "Coach Wooden's Piramid of success", Darrell Waltrip - One on One, "Mike Singletary- One on One" all keeping me captivated from cover to cover!
