I wanted to let you know that your influence affected the direction of my life – in a very positive fashion. I think what I value most about our time together was that I was able to apply the principles that I learned from you in life itself, outside of athletics. I didn’t realize it at the time, but the hard work and teamwork you instilled in me would be something I would be able to use later in many life situations.” Johnson and his wife, Mary Marr Dillard, have two children, Robert and Katherine, and one grandson.  @CoachJ1977

Episode 51: Coach Audrey Taylor- 2019 USA Today National High School Basketball Coach of the Year Franklin High School, Somerset, NJ
  Details: After nine years of coaching Franklin, Audrey Taylor’s team put it all together in perhaps the greatest girls basketball season in state history. The Warriors were the third team to have an undefeated record in New Jersey history, the most wins of any undefeated team, and a Tournament of Champions victory. The team now has three TOC appearances in a row. After going 12-17 Taylor’s first season, the team has progressively improved, and after going 14-10 four seasons ago, Franklin has gone 85-15 since. “(We created) a standard to be tough, defend, and play with your heart, with passion,” Taylor said. “A lot of my kids thrive off of my energy so I would think that I set a standard and it was a winning standard and based on the things that we were going to do, we were going to defend, we were going to rebound the ball and we were going to be aggressive on offense.” She did this while working through the death of her mom, who died during the season. Taylor said the empathy and love of her players helped her move through it. “They’ve seen me be strong for so long that they finally were able to give that back to me. They kept me smiling, kept me encouraged and honestly it just felt good to be around them,” she said. “I give the credit to them and just the kids that they are” Through all that, the team never lost, dismantling opponents with a well-rounded cast led by McDonald’s All American Diamond Miller. Taylor helped her players mature on and off the court as they proved themselves as one of the best teams in the country.

Tonagel and the Wildcats have won three NAIA Division II National Championships in a five year spans with titles in 2014, 2016, and 2018. Indiana Wesleyan won the 2014 red banner in unprecedented fashion as they became the first team to win all five of their games at the national tournament by double digit. In 2016, Indiana Wesleyan defeated the top two seeds in the tournament to claim the title. IWU beat four top-15 teams in 2018 en route to the title, including No. 1 IU East and No. 7 Saint Francis in the championship game, the fourth win over the Cougars during the season. Tonagel is a three-time NABC/NAIA Division II National Coach of the Year. In his 13 season as a head coach, Tonagel has already led Indiana Wesleyan to three national championships, one Final Four, five Elite Eight finishes, and nine Crossroads League regular season championships, including seven straight from 2009-15. Tonagel has three Crossroads League Tournament championships as well with wins in 2010, 2015, and 2018. Indiana Wesleyan has finished three seasons as the No. 1-ranked team in NAIA Division II. Tonagel's teams have spent time in the NAIA top-five in each of the last 12 seasons. In 13 years as head coach, Tonagel is the winningest coach in program history. He has the highest winning percentage (.786), most wins (361), most NAIA national tournament victories (29), most national tournament appearances (11), most Crossroads League regular season championships (9), and most Crossroads League Tournament championships (3). The former Valparaiso (Ind.) University point guard, known for his hard work and energy, has brought those characteristics to the basketball program. Tonagel was introduced as head men’s basketball coach on April 1, 2005. Drawing from experience gained from leading the Valparaiso Crusaders to four NCAA tournament appearances as a starting point guard, along with the tutelage of mentor Homer Drew, Tonagel has helped orchestrate a new era of Wildcat basketball. Prior to Tonagel’s hiring, the Wildcats had won seven games and finished last in the Mid-Central College Conference. The program improved by 10 wins under Tonagel’s tutelage in his first year on the bench and reached the NAIA Elite Eight in his second season. Making a name for himself when it comes to program building, Tonagel has done it through sound developmental teaching and high caliber recruiting. Much of the unprecedented success of the Wildcats can be attributed to the culture Tonagel built at IWU.  The IWU culture is built around two biblically transforming principles; I am Third and Fearless. "It’s our core belief that God has created us for greatness when we realize our potential in becoming “third” and “fearless.” What I have come to realize is that I don’t just coach basketball, I coach people” comments Tonagel. This has helped the influence of IWU basketball to extend far beyond the court. Tonagel and his staff have been committed to using basketball as a platform for discipleship. Prior to his current position, Tonagel served as Director of Basketball Operations at Valparaiso University, where he played in four NCAA Tournaments. He also led his LaPorte High School team to the last single class state finals in 1997. Greg and his wife, Amy, along with their three children Jace, William, and Allie reside in Marion.

From that conversation, Bostwick began praying and in his spirit was birthed “SPIRIT LED COACH”. The mission of the ministry is to both encourage and empower coaches. On March 3, Bostwick launched a movement called SLC3 which challenges coaches to take their walk with Christ to another level. He has a big vision for the future of the ministry, but understands it will take time and a move of the Spirit. The first step is a Christian Coaches Clinic July 19-21 called the SLC3 Experience.

Episode 22: Legendary Coach Chuck Miller
Miller accumulated 861 victories coaching boys and girls high school basketball on a journey that took him through Woodbury, Milner, Monticello and Cartersville high schols before he landed in Henry County. Thats where he spent the final 27 years of his coaching career. Its a place Miller never expected to coach or fall in love with, but he did. Millers greatest success on the court came before he arrived at Henry County. He coached in the state tournament 15 times 12 with boys teams, three with girls teams. He led the Monticello boys to a state runner-up finish in 1973 and had an impressive run of three semifinal appearances in eight years at Cartersville (1977, 79, 81). Miller then thought he was headed to Fayette County, but was lured to Henry County and never left. He coached both boys and girls basketball and was the long-time athletic director. He led the Warhawks to state tournament appearances in 1982, 1983 and 1986, while leading the Lady Hawks to the playoffs in 1982, according to the Georgia High School Basketball Project. Miller said he survived a long career because of his wife, Debbie. The two have been married 42 years.
