Two legends, two hoops stars...

Florida State head football coach Bobby Bowden signed an 8x10 photo care of the FSU athletic department in just nine days. Bowden is the winningest head coach in D-I history, totaling 367 victories since he began his career. Since arriving at Florida State, he has led the school to two national titles and twelve ACC championships. In addition, like Wooden below, he is also a man of high character who is respected by all of those around him for his positive effect on the players he leads.

Also signing was legendary UCLA head basketball coach John Wooden, who autographed an 8x10 photo care of his home address in just eight days. Wooden was the first person to ever be enshrined into the Basketball Hall of Fame as both a player and a coach after winning 10 national titles while coaching the Bruins. Wooden is known for his ability to motivate his players and drive them to achieve their dreams. His book, The Pyramid of Success, describes how to be a winner both on the court and in life.

In addition, incoming freshman DeAndre Jordan of Texas A&M signed a pair of index cards care of the Aggies' athletic department. That request took just eight dyas. The seven-footer from Houston was ranked among the top ten prospects in the 2007 class and chose Texas A&M over the likes of Florida, Indiana, and Texas.

Another hoops star, Davidson's Stephen Curry, also signed care of his athletic department in just eight days. The Wildcats' guard had a stellar freshman season last winter, averaging almost 22 points per game and connecting on 41% of his 3-point shots while leading the team to an impressive 29-5 record in 2006-2007.
