Coach Gailey - EagleScout

Well, Coach Gailey will be profiled in a new book about prominent leaders who were EagleScouts. Coach Gailey is one of them:

Gailey is profiled in the book, which also features Gerald Ford, Bill Gates, Sr., Bill Bradley, Ross Perot, Michael Bloomberg, J. W. Marriott, Jr., Secretary of Defense Robert Gates, Michael Dukakis, Supreme Court Justice Stephen Breyer, Treasury Secretary Hank Paulson, and Jim Lovell of Apollo 13.

The book also explores the virtues of a Tuskegee Airman, a Vietnam War POW, a September 11 NYPD hero, a crew of Hurricane Katrina relief workers, and a host of others from every walk of life.

Gailey, who became an Eagle Scout as a teenager in Americus, Ga., discusses the value of leadership, personal integrity, and honor on and off the football field. He also reflects on the many pressures of his job and how he remains constant through the ups and downs, all the while hoping to make a difference in the lives of his players.

(no, this is not the book)
