Bob co-authored a book about the winningest coach in the history of South Dakota high school basketball, Larry Luitjens. Bob was a developmental coach in Larry’s program for 25 years. The other co-author is Larry’s only son, Lance. The book chronicles Coach Luitjens’ life. You’ll read about his seven state titles, and he himself will offer several pointers you can implement within any sport. The book, however, is about so much more than wins and losses and championships. The authors use Larry’s 47 years of coaching as lessons. Each season has a character lesson and a summary. These lessons can be used individually as a coach or a player; or as a basis for a team talk; or as a discussion for a COACHES FELLOWSHIP. The lessons incorporate scriptures with the physical, mental, social and spiritual challenges of sport and life. Coach Luitjens’ positive winning attitude was contagious, and by the time you finish reading, you are certain to be infected as well. The hope is that you will understand no matter what you do for an occupation, you too can be a COACH OF INFLUENCE!
