In a world where coaching changes are
as common as the cold and contract dis-
putes have become more plentiful in the
morning paper than last night's box scores,
it's nice to know that the venerable and
dependable high school coach remains a
part of hometown lore.
Frank McGuire, the late basketball
coach who led the Tar Heels to the 1957
NCAA tide over Kansas and Wilt
Chamberlain, understood the importance of
values taught by high school coaches across
the country-not just about winning on
the court or in the field, but in life. In his
memory, his former Carolina players and
other friends began the Frank McGuire
Foundation to honor the folks who teach
athletes before they become stars. Last year,
the foundation kicked offits inception with
a gala for six New York-area prep coaches;
next year, they plan to move south, to award
coaches in the Carolinas who are winning
and teaching with class. They'll receive a lit-
de help from area prep sportswriters.
