Sunday Speaker Series Online: Half a Century on the Court
October 18 @ 2:00 pm - 3:00 pm
Great coaches can have long lasting impact on the players they coach and the community they live in. One of the nation’s greatest boys’ basketball coaches of all time grew up and coached in the Rio Grande Valley. The Museum of South Texas History presents “Half a Century on the Court: A Conversation with Basketball Coaching Legend Robert Capello,” a Sunday Speaker Series Online program Facebook Live.
After stints at a few Texas schools, Capello returned to his high school alma mater of Edcouch-Elsa where he coached for more than 30 years. Capello is the winningest Hispanic basketball coach in the country and the gym at Edcouch-Elsa was named after him in 2005. In the 1990-1991 season his Yellowjacket team set a national record for most three-pointers during a 31-win season.
The presentation will be streamed at facebook.com/MOSTHistory/live. Guests are encouraged to interact panelists with questions and comments posted on the live chat. The video will also be recorded and posted for public access on the Museum’s website at www.mosthistory.org.
This program is made possible by the generous support from the Carmen C. Guerra Endowment. Mrs. Guerra was committed to educational causes in the Rio Grande Valley. This named endowment was created by her family to honor her memory and to continue providing educational opportunities for the community.
