Last night I heard Coach Bill Courtney from the documentary Undefeated speak.
Give the trailer above a quick view if you haven’t already seen the movie.
If the trailer didn’t do it, I’ll let someone else convince you to watch the movie. This post is to share some notes I jotted down.
Coach Courtney is passionate about all the grant money and government programming will never make a change.
