One of my allll-time favorite coaches is THE Sherri Coale, OU’s longtime women’s basketball coach. She’s brilliant beyond words and more so off court in my opinion compared to most. Here’s a quote to give you further insight.
What advice do you have for young women who are involved in sports?
Be competitive. Set goals and strive to reach your potential.
Know that within team sports lie so many opportunities to grow and stretch yourself in ways that will make you a better spouse, a better parent, a better professional one day.
Compete with the physical and mental toughness of an athlete on the playing field, but never forget that when you step off the field, you are a female.
Be proud of that. Understand the unique strength that enables you to be exquisite in both arenas.
