  1. Hi Coach – I’ve been looking for something just like this! And it’s a small world, I coach varsity boys basketball at Calvary Christian in Normal, Illinois. In my 3rd year. Noticed in your bio you’ve coached at DeLand Weldon (a fellow conference school) and at Lexington who we also play a couple times each year. Hope you don’t mind but I’d like to use some of your knowledge against those schools this coming season. 🙂 What’s the best way to purchase the book/dvd?

    All the best!

    1. Indeed a small world. Loved coaching at both places. As an Assistant at Lexington, we won the Super Sectional at ISU Horton and went on to State. Became a Head Coach at DW for 5 years Played some games at Horton in Sectional. Then went to Dunlap and we got 2nd when there were only two classes in ’81. Great years. Coaches Choice in Monterey California publishes all five of my books and all 28 DVDs. Let me know which one(s) you got and we can talk thru any of them. Good Luck
