Episode 4.6 "Re-defining Greatness"

As IWUHoops has traded the pursuit of me for the pursuit of three, they’ve noticed a growing hunger across coaching for others to do the same.  This has sparked conversations and gatherings of leaders from across the country in an attempt to ‘re-define greatness’ to align with the IAm3rd way.  This episode will engage two of those leaders who are navigating the tension of putting God 1st and others second in the midst of the demands of a basketball season, the allure of success and the competitive nature of coaching.
