    UL Basketball Byron Starks a Champion back at UL

    http://www.championsforlife.com/index.html


    This is the web address to one of UL's true Champions!!! I had some great memories of watching Byron, he was a hustler, great athlete, and a player who played the game clean but hard!!

    My son will be going to one of his upcoming shooting camps and he is very excited to geaux. He saw a video clip which I will try to post. If I am unable I know the great Turbine will be able to do so.

    Byron has a book that I purchased online as I thought it would be a great read for me and my son!

    DaddyCajun


    ps We are blessed to have great men like Byron to work with our kids and parents. We all give back in our own ways, whether we mean to or not, whether it is good or bad.

    You are so right. B-Starks and C-Mack together were a deadly offensive and defensive combination.

    Great to hear of the success of Starks.

      PUBLISHED: Former UL basketball standout Byron Starks, currently coaching at Northside Christian in Crowley, has written a book, What Does It Take to Become a Champion?

    Just released, the book includes passages from many former Ragin' Cajun student-athletes and coaches - including Brian Mitchell, Jake Delhomme, Brandon Stokley, Javi DeJesus, Tony Robichaux, Beryl Shipley, Yvette Girouard, Andrew Toney, Bobby Paschal and Hollis Conway - answering the title question.

    "Byron put together one of the most powerful tools available today for anyone who wants to excel in every aspect of their life," said Conway, a former UL All-American and two-time Olympic medalist in the high jump.

    Starks is the founder and executive director of Champions International, Inc., a nonprofit motivational corporation. The book is available through that organization's Web site, www.championsforlife.com,
    More information on the book is available from Starks at 898-8889.

    I bought this book just before it came out, as my son happened to be at one of Byrons Basketball Camps. It is a great book and something I try to read every day. A positive quote each day can not hurt anyone!

    Any idea why he would use UL Lafayette on the cover? He isn't required to as he is not associated with the university. Here is local, state and possibly national press on a great book and he calls us UL Lafayette, something we are trying to rid ourselves of. Just wondering why.

    Not arguing the content of the book. Just don't understand when the university has the opportunity for publicity, especially with a former player, why the UL Lafayette reference? Of course, all of our former players in the pros still call us Louisiana-Lafayette, so why am I surprised?

    Makes me wonder sometimes. Every admin should take a refresher course in marketing. The administration is probably the only contact pro players have with UL and that is where they pick up their vocabulary.

    ps Even with his poor UL vocabulary I remember when Starks was a joy to watch.
