Average is Just Not Good Enough, PERIOD!
When famed high school basketball coach Ken Carter literally locked his undefeated, state play-off bound team out of the gym and forced them to hit the books and stop counting on athletic potential as the only ticket out of a tough, inner city life, he sent a powerful message. The film, Coach Carter, based on the lock-out and starring Samuel L. Jackson as the Coach, is just one more testimony to the strength of his convictions. At the podium, Coach Carter scores with hard-hitting advice about accountability, integrity, teamwork, and leadership to succeed both on and off the basketball court.
Boots, chaps and cowboy hats! Any western flair that suits your fancy, or not. Cocktail attire, smart casual, or Austin chic works, too. Dress comfortably and be ready for an uptown hoedown with Susan Dawson, her signature-style cowboy boots and the rest of the E3 Alliance gang.
