SI had a really nice article last week about Coach Wooden's first championship team (which I can't, for the life of me, find online). One little factoid for those of you keeping score at home:
Coach Wooden took over UCLA at 37. He was 53 when he won his first national title. And he wasn't focused on winning. He was focused on playing to potential.
Is it fair to call Coach Wooden a late bloomer? I think so. And here's to us late bloomers! ;-)
