The Faith of Basketball Legend Pat Summitt: God Gave Me ‘Certain Work to Do’

The late Pat Summitt, the winningest coach of NCAA college baskestball history (men and women teams), was a devout Christian, The Christian Post reports.

As Summitt was a devout Christian who attended a Baptist church in Knoxville, Tennessee, her son, Tyler Summitt, the former head coach of the Louisiana Tech Lady Techsters, released a statement Tuesday that described the importance of his mother’s faith in her life.

“For 64 years, my mother first built her life upon a strong relationship with her Lord and Savior, Jesus Christ,” Summitt wrote in the statement. “Her foundation was also built upon love of her family and of her players, and love of the fundamentals of hard work which reflected her philosophy that ‘you win in life with people.'”
