W.T. Johnston Coaching a Life Lesson

On Thursday December 20, 2018 Newton High School in Texas defeated Canadian HS 21-16 in football to capture the Class 3A Division II Texas State HS Championship.

For those geographically challenged Newton TX is located in East Texas. Population 2,387 and located in a pretty rural part of the state.

Newton’s Head Football Coach is W.T. Johnston. He has a serious health issue. In 2015, Johnston received a double lung transplant and soon after developed chronic host versus graft disease which makes it nearly impossible to breathe at times.

In the spring of 2018 he was told by his doctors that he didn’t have long to live maybe eight months. A leader’s character is unveiled when they are going thru personal struggles and still can look to find ways to serve others.  Coach W.T. Johnson passed that leader test by serving others. Listen to his wisdom that I got from an interview by Caleb Beames

“I get to see how I am impacting people before I die,” Johnston said. “I know I am going to die. “Most of you won’t get that chance. You will have a heart attack or die in a car crash or something and never see it coming. I’ve been given a gift. “I’ve been given a great life. It is about what you do with it. I try to not just talk about x’s and o’s. I try to talk about life. Everyone is going to experience it one day. The lord has shown me so many great things through this and I hope I have shown these guys.

After the state championship game he was interviewed and what he said in that 2 minute and 45 second YouTube video is powerful-WATCH IT

We all have been given a great gift-find yours and use it.

Great coaching lesson W.T. Johnston
