Coach Holtz will be sharing the "Game Plan for Success" with our members and guests.
Lou Holtz has established himself as one of the most successful college football coaches of all time. He is the only coach in the history of college football to take six different teams to a bowl game, win five bowl games with different teams and, have four different college teams ranked in the final Top 20 poll. Despite never inheriting a winning team, he compiled a 243-127-7 career record that ranked him third in victories among active coaches and eighth in winning percentage. His twelve career post-season bowl victories ranked him fifth on the all-time list. Holtz was selected for the College Football Hall of Fame, class of 2008. SPEAKER: Holtz maintains an extensive speaking schedule and has been considered among the greatest speaking legends in America today. He speaks on overcoming seemingly impossible challenges by setting your own goals and working to achieve them. Holtz has built a reputation as a motivator, a demanding disciplinarian, and someone who relishes challenges and hard work. AUTHOR: Holtz has authored several books, including three New York Times best-selling writings, The Fighting Spirit, Winning Everyday:AGame Plan for Success, and Wins, Losses and Lessons, an autobiography of his life and the lessons he has learned. For his younger audience, Holtz authored A Teen’s Game Plan for Success.
