“Anatomy of a Champion” offers a unique introspective of arguably the greatest dynasty, teams, coach and man in the history of sports.

. I am writing to you, my potential donors as I am currently in the final stages of completing a book/pictorial that chronicles the ten NCAA championships UCLA won during a twelve-year span while John Wooden was the coach. This project will culminate over twenty years of determination, interviews, research and study of Coach Wooden and all of the various eras, teams and players who were coached by him, the greatest coach of all-time and the architect of one of the greatest dynasties in sports history. The UCLA basketball dynasty under John Wooden exemplifies all the qualities connected to being a winner, a champion, and a success both on and off the court. Via the “Anatomy of a Champion,” I would like to partner with my donors to present this tribute of a great man, coach, and dynasty. The Anatomy of a Champion will uniquely unveil the UCLA basketball legacy to the fans and all those who appreciate true success in sports and in life. Your participation as a donor / partner for the "Anatomy of a Champion" will enhance my ability to produce, to market, promote and sell the book. To bring the project to fruition, I am seeking $100,000 that would be used to secure already identified and captioned photographs (over 650), complete the editing, design and production of the hard copy coffee table book (and eventual virtual/E-book), and fund the initial stages of the promotion of the book. I I need you to help me reach our collaborative targeted markets within the UCLA, sports, business and education communities throughout the United States and internationally.

Risks and challenges Learn about accountability on Kickstarter

The "Anatomy of a Champion" has been over twenty years of diligence, hard work, research, interviews, rejection and a faith that this project will be done. There will be risk and challenges but no one is more equipped than myself to make sure that whatever the challenges are I will overcome them. In 1975 our UCLA team was not predicted to win the NCAA national championship title. There were many risk and challenges we faced, but Coach Wooden had the faith in me that I could coach his team on the court to the championship, I played ever minute in five games en route to winning the title. When I spearheaded the campaign to get Coach Wooden nominated it did not happen in the first year, it took three years before he was finally nominated and awarded the Presidential Medal of Freedom. I have and will bring that same tenacity, decision making and ability to go from trouble shooting to resolution to the Anatomy of a Champion and with your help I will deliver a championship book and rewards on the back of a standard of excellence and championship mindset that my college Coach John Wooden imparted to me. Be the best that you are capable of being, have faith and fight until you get the victory. Mountains in life I believe must move or crumble.
