Tuesday, March 10, 2015

What is the book about?

As the coach of one of high school basketball’s greatest programs, Coach Dru Joyce has been mentor and motivator to some of the nation’s best young players, including basketball legend LeBron James. Despite having virtually no experience in the sport, in less than ten years, Joyce went from a no-name fan to one of the highest profile basketball coaches in the country. With insight and grit earned from his years on and off the court, Coach Dru shares for the first time the secrets to his teams’ success and his own achievements. Far more than a sports book, Beyond Championships is a blueprint for anyone looking to make better choices, reach their full potential, and become a winner in all areas of life. As he outlines the nine principles that he promotes to his players and tries to live by in his own life, you’ll discover that the solid foundation on which he built so many successful basketball programs can be applied to almost any situation.

Who wrote it?

 Dru Joyce II was born and raised in East Liverpool, Ohio. He is a graduate of East Liverpool High School and Ohio University, with a degree in Business Administration. Dru moved his family to Akron in 1984 to begin a career at Con Agra. In 2004, he left that position to coach basketball full-time. Since leaving the corporate world, Dru has built a business around the sport of basketball. His King James Shooting Stars Classic Tournament, now in its sixth year, is one of the largest and most respected travel team tournaments in America, drawing over 600 teams. He is also the Executive Director of the Northeast Ohio Basketball Association and in 12 seasons as Head Coach at St. Vincent – St. Mary, has guided the Irish to a national championship, three state championships, nine district titles and five regional crowns., while garnering one National Coach of the Year award.
