John Wooden's Pyramid of Success


This season the Brandon Eagles are being introduced to the amazing wisdom and philosophies of legendary coach John Wooden. He developed the model for personal and team excellence beginning as a 24-year old high school English teacher and culminating as one of, if not the best college basketball coaches. The Wizard of Westwood won 10 National Championships in 12 years, including a record 7 national titles in a row. He was at the helm of the UCLA Bruins for 27 years; his resume includes an amazing 88-game winning streak and an won-loss record of 664–162 (.804).

The Pyramid of Success began as a heartfelt exercise on to help his students learn and to guide his players to become their best on and off the court.

Brandon High School Coach Isaac Anderson is leading the team's research and review of the model that produced one of the greatest sports dynasties ever.

Coach Anderson encourages all to take a moment to review the Pyramid of Success and apply it to what you do each day to make you a better person, employee, employer, coach, teammate, friend and family member.
