An interview with Men's Basketball Coach Mike Lightfoot aired on Thursday, Aug. 29 on Experience Michiana on WNIT. Lightfoot shared insights on excellence, passion and purpose in life, along with thoughts about the future of Bethel under the leadership of President Gregg Chenoweth. The episode is available for viewing on the WNIT website.
In his 27th year directing the Bethel basketball program, Lightfoot has compiled an impressive list of accomplishments, including more wins than all previous Bethel coaches combined (684 to 441), seven national championships, 10 Crossroads League regular season championships and seven Crossroads League tournament championships (more than any coach in League history), five National Coach of the Year and six League Coach of the Year awards. Lightfoot also is the quickest collegiate coach at any level to 300, 400, 500, and 600 career wins. He accomplished those feats in 10, 13, 18, and 22 seasons, respectively.
The program was hosted by Charlie Adams, a motivational speaker and author of four books on positive attitude and peak performance.
