Quotes from the Summitt

By  |  5 Comments

While iconic basketball coach Pat Summitt made history on the court, she viewed herself first and foremost as an educator. Raised on a dairy farm in Clarksville, she learned the value of hard work at a young age while working alongside her three older brothers on the farm. She went on to teach this work ethic and discipline to each of her student-athletes while winning eight national championships, achieving a 100% graduation rate and becoming the all-time winningest coach in any sport, men or women, in NCAA history.

Summitt, who passed away in 2016, left a legacy that continues to inspire athletes everywhere. Her gift for offering advice and wisdom forms the basis of a new book, Quotes from the Summitt, which provides inspiration in the form of Summitt’s quotes and includes many written in her own handwriting.
