What a great time of the year! The weather is turning cooler and the days are nice and warm and the sporting scene is hopping. This is my favorite time of the year, with baseball winding down and the playoffs on the horizon, football at all levels in full swing and the best of all, the beginning of basketball practice with the season coming quickly. I hope everyone had a great summer and were able to enjoy the down time with families and friends and recharge for the upcoming basketball season.

As the season gets underway, take some time to enjoy the journey of the season. Think back to all of the mentors that were a part of your life growing up and were probably the reason that you chose to enter the coaching profession. Pick up the phone and give them a call or drop them a note just to say thanks. I would like to take this time to wish each of you the best of luck on the upcoming season and I hope that you are able to achieve all of the goals that you have set for your team. 

The Fall Clinic is approaching quickly. It will be held this year on Thursday October 15 on the campus of Oklahoma Baptist University in Shawnee with registration starting at 8:00. We have been able to line up a great agenda of speakers and demonstrators, those speaking will be Doug Schumpert of Anadarko High School and Dewayne Bradley of Midwest City High School. Bringing their teams to demonstrate will be Ron Arthur of Shawnee High School and Larry Johnston of Washington High School. Each of these coaches does a great job and we are very excited to have them. 

I would like to take this time to thank the Oklahoma Basketball Coaches Association for allowing me to serve as your President for the past year. It has been one of the greatest honors of my coaching career. I would like to thank all of the officers and especially Mark Wilson for making this such an enjoyable year. We have a great organization and I would like to encourage all of you to get involved with our organization as it continues to grow. Once again, thank you and I look forward to seeing you at the Fall Clinic in Shawnee.
