Everyone has a story, it's just that some are more interesting. Such is the case of Tom Rettig teacher and coach. In an extra large 1-hour episode we continue the latest biography podcast with the long time educator. We pick up from last week's conversation and move to the formative years of his career in the 1960's & 70's. Our conversation starts with his time at Bowling Green State University and balancing a relationship and then young family with education and then work. Early on, Tom took on challenges in wanting to find opportunities where he could advance but was also in a good fit of being needed. From Lucas High School and coaching baseball, to coaching tennis at Dayton Fairview and then boys basketball at Holland Springfield and then Cardinal Stritch in Toledo. Through it all, Tom was attending coaching camps and working camps to increase his knowledge and to gain experience in the coaching fraternity. This included working Don Donaher's camp at the University of Dayton and then, getting an opportunity in the 1970's to work legendary coach John Wooden's UCLA camp and forging a relationship with the Wizard of Westwood. Thoughts of a college coaching career, however, fizzled when he wasn't able to deliver a future college basketball hall of famer as a bonus to his employment.
