Where you were raised in in in how he ended up. He QB in the head coach of the current college Charles and we were you what tell what city you grew up at. Well I grew up in jokes about it didn't go I was born and raised here and you know I'll have came up and when I was we had a really good clear at my eyes. Side on the plea at the Colin Giles and his name was anti Johnson. And he came immediately for legendary coach John crux. Who was here for twenty years it really developed a great program keeping. College also from the in the eight noble to the it was attacked back in but it was. Deadly now though and Exxon they went from in the I need to and it technically. That's now on the Atlantic's and they really did a great job. Dominate at the end and one mountainous Southern Conference. When they were problems with Davis in. A one year swear that the 21 and oh and so. Well coach grant was again. He's into what my. Our workers basketball camps back in the early. And that's really. The connection with the economy also are up here. In the work coach is cancer. It is where medically Marshall. Because I woes. Went out here great Marshall was an assistant coach here at the college also in. So that's how I did not work what went Wichita State. You know and that connection but we grew up here and you know my first division one coaching job back here. And the citadel which military institute in Charleston. And an when a way for years. Working in different universities went through Wichita State Clemson. And that was very fortunate to eagle it offers a coaching job. Well you know that that song you can come home right. And it's it's always a great story I think when you win win new wind kid comes home to his home town does really good stuff. Coach you went to RB still high school. How many did you play multiple sports through basketball only guy. Simply not removing everything started out playing baseball basketball and football. And then you know. Obviously baseball one knows what she can't continue to play but so can go to parking. You don't count down agreed to wanna make these kind of gave up baseball and almost no going back for what basketball football and you know and in my senior year are you guys are currently ugly people still in basketball football. Epic game of football up muscle once you the year. Went back out last year we actually game one game away from the Wednesday title and football. And you know and obviously for basketball and some opportunities go to college. Stuck with that and I was able this silent. We love small college ball two years at Spartanburg meant to this junior college. In game two years and Georgia college which is it that this. Is actually where stuck in my coaching career as equipped systems as well. You had a lot of success at the end Georgia college to two consecutive. Peaceful conference championships lead aid. In the 2000 NCAA tournament did did you know coach an early age. That coach of basketball a supplement that that tells you to be in your future. I had no idea an early age. You know when I was. In June because my sophomore year I guess would be your first time that I really. Realize it you know coaching was something that I wanted to do because. I was playing on the team at Spartanburg Methodist has opposite freshman and sophomore year but there was some guys. On campus who tried to be applauded that he will come out every year and try out for the team and they would never make the team it would. It would file was I ended up having an army OT. They're out with those guys who got cut out. Put them on a team we had in me looking so I would go to practice and practice at two and half hour was. Work hard do we have to do in Italy today in. Europe. Locally gain more campuses so that year. My sophomore year in college coach in an enemy or he means you realize you know. Is pretty neat to get a group of again it and work call. You know induce. Cheer she would each other and trying to you know be going to be better so I think. That first time that it really. You came into my heart it may be coaches something that I want to do. In the working camps and work in different camps in different universities. You coast Deon is accurate count. Feel my passion for the station or coaching in. And but I thought I wanted to do who never thought about college. Campus I wanted to do who. You know very fortunate and very blessed in division one opportunities. God open a lot of that would slow me out when you've been looking for and is there exports. Eight. Patriots that was a great opportunity Wichita State I'm always cash. Kept my eye on that on the shocker is because my my whole family my dad my mom their maker at which time and so it's been on town which it's on. Got a few beaten back in the early days of Wichita State they had a big rivalry at that time with Tulsa university admits that I think there are separate conferences now that. Your time which it's always good. No it was great I learned a lot. We just left. Winthrop University. We have greens fees in went 24 actually won at com. Market and the PepsiCo and Pepsi classic. We won a tournament that market. It went 29 fool out of action that would be Notre Dame and effort throughout the tournament. And you know internment and went to Wichita State. All of a sudden we twenty. Who as a whole effort lose reality right there. Yeah and so a year to become but I am an experience you're too we started out the year six and twelve point seven. And we can't create income in the and they were up 25 an outline may use this airy fairy. This can be taught I don't know who won another game and I think. It is very hard to keep their program called on the one thing that were not 612 or. What I would run achievement it was a white out it was and now I think. I'm thinking about it why why they're being here and look at this. And we won hanging in needless to say we went on the ghost seventies and that year in the nation we went twenty change. You know this can't go out there very very unbelievable pro. Were at the people who love basketball. But it was good to go to the company experienced. They're as an assistant that is very similar to what we went we. On the here at the college shell open to the same point you know trying to build a program and has found it to the point we ask success so. I guess that you learned is is it to be humbled first. Yeah I have heard coach last question or forget your break. Don't Ed as a best vocalist myself isn't it. And it's so difficult to teach kids. How to win. You know we lose and it's really easy it's an easy thing you can lose you know every day of the week. But he tried eager to get a group of kids were used to losing. TT get them over the harping get them a taste of winning. And and when there's too messy going in the game and you're down by three for them not to go argue Rico again. Did you find that it to be real to a real challenge. We know early when I first got here. In the year one yes. And years to. A little bit about found that a little bit it was part. Get those guys to believe. In it'll to get to the point they keep you loose. Consecutive those gains to get to the point where solely gaming gas leak. Based on that doubts start creeping in fear looms historically so. Which you know as you continue to grow would have thing. In practice every day you'd talk about core values in particular mine also. And result of winning in just could jamaat wrapped mine around that they could Dave process. What did it take to win what does it take one goal to practice. In the aghast on builders' confidence in. Some. Opal well. The future and you win a few close games in the attack in terms that's what happened to a you know our players just don't really believe that we stay true now core. And we went off the court you know in the classroom and community. Wanted the court and ask. I think he's a model in the classroom and community make good decisions because people. It quietly asked without up try to do and still trying to. He is another head basketball coach at car and a College of Charleston is Earl grant last year 25 and ten.

I have my mom and dad in the house one up and reach. Juice Williams still in the early age. How important was to serve people. She kept us in church on campus in the children church who were involved in the church. You know at a young age I mean I was in church every Sunday. There may god didn't wanna go it would be all it be known as Southern Baptist Church you go any you know. Four. While most of the Sundays we. Go to church in aperture you want you to be Buckley the so we've been made 3 o'clock. You know when it was like this did so I'm really at a young age didn't realize how important it would be. This the siege that will be planet and he about your fees they trusted name. You know learn how to Corey. Actually god or steps. In just a piece he come from you know. From the one day as a bigger purpose in this. Knowing all about cheese and and as BB BA Serb people in and be humble. And understand and you know Ricans don't really know what you put in which. I think the city on the trapped in the involved. It out there and and you know my big day out walk now. As a coach as a leader as a father as a husband. You know oh. It all comes back up he goes on their. You know think about how my life would be as I was the ball goes to. Somebody it is. You know trying to help this community and Chelsea community. And I'll be due it'll that I. Important ordering my steps and easily given current every day. Yeah so I'm always thankful for those that had gothic parents and took from the church and not tie. I grip and environments there really thankful and so I came. And it's time early in my life coach that I put my trust in Christ then. Emery is a Sunday night after church you remember I was it obviously then when you were young and she made that decision. You know. I don't know. Under Goosen. For sure there was it when I was young. That I can say do it like as definite kinda made that decision. I think those fees were playing in the meat in the I think I went off. But think about it I'm off to college in in my first year two in college. I found myself not going to church. And and then eventually found a church it was. That was could be in if you buying good quality in men towards orbit. That feed into my life. And now watch how I want to enjoy the now trying to figure out why why me why I guess so much joy and I think inspired me Leo don't wanna be like. Africa meant towards. People to watch and follow. I think is one of the reasons. That. That seed was planted me in and I wanted to be I wanna wanted to be O chew. In which you realize it is not completely. You know I'm not and without god am I just a empty. Without not now be lost without guard Erica. I have the me chew war that I goal. As much as I can each and every day he. He batted in and in the wisdom. Read bobbled ocean. And then have been you don't mean uses but it happened at other good man like that they don't Jordan. You know dale Clayton as one of my meant to. In the that you have a started nations coaches. You know the called to mold our athletes in action. You know done and he Ohio of these guys is stated my. You know and and I think I think you gotta have people on their dignity and in other other Christine coaches. That all our. Trying to build programs. And I haven't success. In the understand anything about them. And you know how important it is. To La have a relationship goddess. Each and every day and so I think this happen people. Did to La. Fellowship with helps. You know we've had several coaches honest said has had a little is similar to sign a they were kind drug to church drawn out and then they they get away should. From from going to church and then make. They came in contact with someone who. He is you were talking about had been just great joy and they want and no man or is I come from man. Actually comes from that decision to put put my face totally incher and my trust totaling Jesus Christ. You know as my savior he's the only one who can save me. And and you think of a love the guys head for some sense on the technology. All all the he did for us take our send them. And that so it's important now I think that's awesome coach that he has some guys there like many others of our guests have had that have invested in and shared with them that message either and those seeds were planted early on and I'm grateful for moms and dancing Reynolds and Graham pulls that. That really do that with the kids. You know since trustee could pastor and any coach who the more we do faith in the zone the more comes up that. It's so important to have men. That are willing to talk about Willie get up on the moan Tampa's Hussein in this on this show. Because it's it's it it seems like the younger guys 20/20 five in that age. That or even 1819 that area you are thinking about trying to get back yet in the church were there momma grandmother brought them to. And then when they walk into a church if they can see. You know well older men that it that might could like coach says they have joy and are willing to sit talk about. Their life with these guys is just really important in past years ahead of it of church you understand the importance. Of having good godly man in that church. All the way we say it often as the man go so goes their church and and that's true that's true in our nation as chair communities. You know good good godly man we've gotten away you know obviously their countries get away from the lord and he. Yeah the one guy remember turner Gil he's coach in that liberty now kinda. After Nebraska think won the division one championship one year. I mean the first thing he said was I want to thank my lord and savior Jesus Christ and the next thing you know the Mike was taken away. And that that's cowboy they'll hold faith in the zone program started we want guys to be able to talk about but their lord but their savior and and not have the Mike showed off and so now coach I'm thankful for. For you coming on share with a song cycle for my access analysts because I know it's a challenge each week has. I don't think there's very many programs like this on air today and so we're grateful. And you know call you coach who you talk about is it deal plane neared Dell Clayton. From the knee still Helio. The other nations of coaches. You know guys like that that are planting seeds all the over. The country and trying to help coaches. With their walking it's it's so important to have guys like that. That that are investing their time and best in their heart into it coaches throughout the country. You know we Q we we need to pray for guys like that on a daily basis. No absolute and you got from the Indian in all other coaches in all of alt and you know guys in the got to have people. Feed and you know it. You know not being bit in the hardest thing that you got to realize that talk about staff about this. Those offer is on to serve two masters. There's a certain way you try to go about our business each and every day example which so cleaners. And so I try to tell Michael to we got to get a BP book is. You know I can't feel wanted and I love Google it and good god has been. Intimate trusting god in what he. Understand that we can't control everything but it. You know but it we've seen an option for me in trusting god dust as the most important thing. This ought to do that and bingo on B and run around like me. And not be good example and so we tried as hard as we push out. You know I try to tell my staff to called out of love and that way. You know nest of food disputed the mean people see when they walk in the genome and you know we don't need to be cut and don't need to be acting like lunatics because. For me personally. I would like from my wife or my key is war in one must why is indeed indeed had to walk to chew up minutes. That they actually know. The coaches don't Louis and saint people they see all. We can't be a good example. While blues man with a bike and with that we just we try to do it. You know we talked a lot about coach on our program with Mike on platform and how god. Gives. This is the sauce and assailed gun we'll get of believers that are in in the athletic world for the that he coaches or players platform. I you know to be able isn't it to share Jesus craze with those they come in contact with because. Like Mike and I'm talked about mean people are searching you know for answers today I mean like what what happens when I die. And and the deceive the opportunities in the platform God's given Syria and you know man let's say you get around and I know in our day you we have to have wisdom in how we talk to people warming crisis even says that his disciples he says you need to go out and be as wise as serpents and that's harmless is does. But yet the who was with how you just talked about how you want a coach and how you wanna live via you don't want to be hypocritical you want to be real on both sides. I mean that that makes people thirsty don't wanna know hey what you have that don't have and so I would. I was just to carry out keep press amount for the king it's that's a great testimony coach. Appreciate. You keep doing that and then play man to man defense that can make sure. The line up to live place in the net Inco last thing before we get to break we. We had a division three coach from Indiana I've told this story a couple of times but. He he talked about how easy it was for him this year his feet in the locker room. But once she got outside of the locker room he really struggle in that church he he took a class and how to be an evangelist he read some books. And you read a book called I'm not a fan. And he spent the extra three dollars ago when those small those program operates was set that you put on and on that it's and I'm not a fan. And you walk you through the grocery store some and sighed and said horde chew fanned out. And he said I'm not a fan of Jesus Christ. And the woman said once in 87 I think his fears and and the silenced palm follower can tell you about it. And it said all this time and energy and each spent and all the two who's three dollar praised the flu board open those don't those doors Foreman. And I just love this during any chance they get to tell the coaches that story do you guys we got to get to break our special guest. He's a real good when he's ahead men's basketball coach the College of Charleston he is Earl grant and will continue our conversation with him. On the other side this is faith in the zone on sports Radio One 057 FM the fan. Worn out of faith in the zone discovering people of sports in their walking me. Face in the zone. Has brought you finding Brooke's side Baptist Church that the host Mike and give Vernon and pastor can kill her. On sports Radio One 057 FM the fan. Mean. Welcome back to show faith in this whole non sports Radio One 057 from the fan. I might be giver and my cohosts of set I was ten that's the sky captain Jerry it don't hold break were argued zone or man to man. And reliable is the culture of the year in the colonial athletic association. He's in it he agrees that coach of the year it's not a valid claim that the Obama. Special cast its Euro grip yet coach at calvary Baptist we have 67 kids in the old school seven boys and a basketball team and our biggest kid who's pastor cans Katie was 63 and we're supposed to teach that Syracuse kinda match up where they go forwards come way out. Their forwards are all about 68 with a walk on the witness stand up our kids are our three was about a 61 kid you'd never played basketball before but. Yeah it was good can you give me your outlook character I'd I'd see the look ha I seek. You don't coach I coached all the pastor Ken has four sons and a host a mall. And I know you have three boys correct. Yeah kriegel cult holier than. Pick coach enjoy them very many of them every every minute goes by so fast lace itself. Cathy she is. You know the boys just love gym and on in trying to hit nine and I go hunting Nichols black and blue low marks only the fifth. Pages any and either poise like basketball the best ball kids. Well you know you say they they all love they'll I don't know bailout bad boy on the net mold. Well why until Gundy to coach some more coaching harder. I just you know are volatile modest one level I wanna be it takes shoots a black and really pushed it all but. Either they go to all of our camps in the summer. In my opinion nine year old art is getting to that point now where I get home. There's same day we go our society you know work out logo. We go work and now lead the just kind of started out wanted it to be initiated by them out by. And so anytime they act I just dropped whatever I'm doing and we we go right out so you can actually be sold. I bet. In that Garnett missed on the plea won't want you know. My two year old is very competitive my nine year old. Is afraid to lose so sometimes you didn't want and one woman as a brother. But now almost on the issue is dot neglect each other. And I liked the show and I'm not totally looking. Fortunate. When I was nine I would love to have a two year old I was ten out of love nine Euro so. Making sure the better. A potential wanting out today as they keep getting older you might have to give directory of few times guess. I would see the boys you know they play for my can one ever been and you get him in the driveway against one another. Humming as a thousand another whole level. Another malveaux is another level Kathy say you got to go out there rest they're getting in fights and now you know coach foreign when Trey yeast and when he's about to go to high school. You know there's a high school here in the city of Milwaukee's. I'm coach and I can't recruit that I can recommend and highly suggest. Send him up here will get him going OK I don't want to see your point guard repaid easier it would you know. They you know you don't ask her not to be a cordless. Phone calls about yo talked about how many points he made it camps they should be. That though let's say that. Yet they must say Campbell Isiah has more point he liked issued a ball. You know he actually shoot it better in my tenure nobody passes more. I think more of a point. Man I love it like a leg pastor said. I'm I envy you because you've got some great things with with these kids and and certainly any chances you give it edited Ted Ted spent time with them take him because it goes by so quick. Our our sons will all played a division three college athletics and my son Matthew it's merit at the Baptist Bible culture Wisconsin. And I remembered that day his senior year the last game that he played. If they won they got to go to nationals they lost. And eat it just ends quickly Oprah plea and painfully. And that was my you mean I coached him in high school and went and watched him in fact coach out. My wife and I never sat next to each other for one of his games she told me adding cheer correctly. Group I don't really know what that means coach what you mean and she needs more encouragement here and encouragement and didn't shoot the ball better now after all that's another us open if you don't like. You didn't get the kids just suit foreign wrote that the gap and kick it to him his pitches he had formed road cards though we are. I'm trying to figure I'm trying to figure out what to do the game that there is obvious is so low level where. The policy work out why. She's an immediate element to run down the rule should the bulk of the sitting in apple could seed work and might. Clap my hands a couple of but it. I just you know when it and we rat hole and analysts say a whole lot of us into war. It went really good out as a tool that went really bad I'll listen to or so and I'll wait for them open up the door for me seeing what I need. Some kind of figured out on the they use the. You know two things with that pastor did pastor Ken's wife Kathy. Who was a mom of some of the pair like his nose coaching and TT games form. And she's sometimes you forget that the sound was whose and so I can hear. My pastor's wife or the mom of some accuse him coach and who now I'm happy to send the decisions is open up a lot but what. They paid coach had to put my son back into Tampa. And secondly coach I have to say by seven Matthew Clinton and rec league in while in and its Colo toasty here and add theory in theory that team leaders near the Andean and the deal was when the other team got the rebound. You couldn't process so you had to go back to pick up a half court he's a little guy at this point. And his team was up by one the other team shot missed they get the rebound and hand him the ball and he stood there. And waited and waited because Chicago go going to ship is that. And the colts look at me and then he goes go go go and you do admit she's watching McCartney took time out. And there's nine seconds to echo and the courts who what you're doing EC coaches in Ambon the ball to me in the back court they can't press we win. Editor goes through Charlotte but yeah. And burst out lap and you looked at me and that's it go with the media I didn't know that at its roots of the so I knew I had low point guard at auto in my hands that. You know if you lose I know that the Q so gifted athletically Woody's pretty Smart kitten. And I hand the ball pretty well. He coach would you recruit. For the College of Charleston how open argue I it's hard not to be open when I hear you talk about. Your faith and how important news in your life when you get into the living room where they leaked the kitchen of acute that you want. To come there are pretty open with with the economy amateur. Yeah I want I want him to know. You know because obviously. Number one they need to know why downgrading and I wanted to know. They've become plea Community Colleges now that number one how so number one thing. I love them all on the up and without them. You eat and eat dog in order to be. The mandate he could be without him. There's like have a driver and all the way to Wisconsin right now but yet can't get ilk. In so you not want them know that and also want to note. What my family is to me why some monkey is. And how important it is that they Cain plea can be. More than winning games are won and be a better person when it. Hope she won't you must stamp my ankle is. What it looked like to be a good father would be good as the so be it be an example forms until. I want them in no with a walk into because some is come into me and been exposed. And they don't know. And they weren't raised in the church. And to be honest which is. Thinks I'm cute and memories in church in the lightly. To god and that got this weird how important relationship goddess. On to undertake a melodic you've adapted to and subliminal. And they decided com. At least it won't be any when it is and but is room for any young man in the grow here as a person and as more important. To me Indus try and gain because I think if you grow as a person. And you have pretty. You know work hard every day. You've gone way cool. If you. Got apps can tell you got to have talent but you can get talent. That. In the not good allies in these tokens occasionally and use. And decisions that might be 80. You got it character. He achieved you'd I want accused in the law because it is bigger than basketball. We wanna win championships and more competitive person you know work or are out work everybody. On our schedule. But. Is bigger basketball I want one think is an. He's a pastor do research for the show every article word it talks about coach champion. The Q the coach of the year in the colonial athletic association their read about some of his players. One's a first team. All conference use from Orlando Florida. Second one was set double award winning a garden spot he was from Columbia, South Carolina. Second you're the road junior cars collected all defensive team from Athens Georgia and I think it madness that they ever come north. And then all of a sudden there was cue from Kenton Ohio anfield will batter didn't they got a kid from Kent Ohio was a an award winner.
