Coach Pete Carroll is making sure John Wooden’s legacy lives on.
As the Seahawks returned to Virginia Mason Athletic Center for OTA No. 8 this morning, Carroll spent several minutes during the team meeting discussing the impact and message of the legendary UCLA basketball coach who passed away last week.
Carroll drove home one of his favorite lessons from Wooden, the power of articulating and knowing exactly what you stand for and what drives you.
“Knowing what you want and who you are gives you a chance to be as good as you can possibly be,” Carroll told his players. “When you know who you are, there’s power in that because then you can re-create it.”
