This show brings the audience great things Ohioans are doing to make their communities, the state, the region, and the world a better place as entrepreneurs, leaders, historical and popular culture figures.
For this episode, I had the pleasure of re-connecting with Coach Matt Kramer from Wilmington High School Coach Kramer was on episodes 25-27 several years ago.
Coach Kramer is the co-author of the great book The Best-Laid Plans of a High School Basketball CEO, which he wrote with legendary Ohio High School Basketball Coach Randy Montgomery (the book is temporarily out of print, but will be available again soon). Coach Kramer wrote the book to document his journey and provide a resource for up and coming coaches.
Coach Kramer has had quite the coaching journey since we spoke last. Coaching in Georgia, he coached elite D1 high school players and played at a national level. He returned to Ohio and was named Wilmington coach in spring 2019.
To connect with the Outstanding Ohioans show, here are a few ways:
Here are the highlights from our conversation:
- Go listen to Episodes 25-27 for previous conversations
- Coaching experience running an elite national program in Georgia-big names, big games
- Impact of the coronavirus on plans for his program and what he is focusing on right now
- how his return to Ohio has reinvigorated his WHY
- The value of relationships
- the “Drug” of coaching
- the impact of writing of the book and how it has enhanced his career
