Origin of a Legend

Richard Head, Pat Summit's father, dies at age 83

The print version mentions how Pat Summitt's father put up a basketball goal on the family farm's hayloft in Henrietta, TN, where Pat would play against her brothers after they finished their chores. Mr. Head later moved the family to neighboring Cheatham County so Pat could enroll at a high school with a girl's basketball team.

Knoxville residents have long known the legendary story of how Pat Summitt rose to the pinnacle of women's basketball fame. All I hope is that someday a movie is made of her life, dedication, heart and commitment to her players and the excellence inside them. And I hope that Richard Head has a prominent role, since that's where it all began.

Any casting choices?
