|ARMY'S EARL "RED" BLAIK|
|AN ALL -TIME COACHING GREAT|
BY HUGH WYATT
Earl "Red" Blaik was everything Americans would expect a graduate of the United States Military Academy to be: an officer, a gentleman, and a winner. As West Point's head football coach from 1941 through 1958, he was one of the best ever.
In his 18 years at West Point, he coached three national champions and six unbeaten teams. Even more important than his 166 wins, though, was the example of leadership he provided at a place where leadership is prized.
Read the story of this legendary coach and learn from him. In his career and in his many experiences, you'll find lessons that are universal - lessons that can apply to your coaching today.
