Pat Summitt (1952-2016) was one of the greatest basketball coaches of the modern era. In her 38 years at the University of Tennessee, her Lady Vols won eight National Championships and her final 31 teams made the NCAA Tournament. Before she was diagnosed with early onset Alzheimers Disease in 2011, she did a series of interviews where she explained the secrets to her success. In this appreciation of Coach Summitt, she explains in her own words how she approached recruiting, education, scheduling, motivation, and even described a famous fight she had …. with a raccoon! We also hear from her son Tyler, who shared his thoughts on her courageous battle against Alzheimers. While the great Pat Summitt left us in 2016, her words of wisdom resonate to this day.
