if you don’t know who morgan wooten is, or why it’s such a big event, just think about this:
– he’s had a career record of 1,274 wins vs. 192 losses since starting coaching dematha’s basketball team back in 1956. that means he’s won about 87% of his games, more than any other basketball coach (high school, college, or professional).
– he’s also one of three high school basketball coaches that’s in the basketball hall of fame.
while i never really played sports back in high school, i did get to meet him in the halls walking around school. he was a really nice guy, and one of the big figureheads of the school… he’ll be missed.
