Coach Josh Thompson Talks Tornado Women’s BasketballFor this edition of eTornado, we talked with King University head women’s basketball coach Josh Thompson about the student-athletes he coaches, and why he thinks King sets itself apart from other schools in the region. Remembering Dale BrownWhen we talked about teaching, Dale Brown liked to quote his friend and mentor Frederick Buechner: “I have always believed, it is not so much their subjects that the great teachers teach as it is themselves … it is they themselves who leave the deeper mark” (Now and Then, p. 12).
