Coach John Baxter believes that there is a lot more to education than standardized test scores and GPA. In fact, he believes that education is a young person's opportunity to master the skills required for lifelong success. "It's about a lot more than getting a 'B' in Geometry," Baxter says "It's about approaching school with the intention of developing a competitive edge results in success now and for the rest of your life."

Last fall, he and former NFL player, Clint Stitser, released a book titled "I Hate School: How A College Football Coach Has Inspired Students To Value Education And Become Lifelong Learners" and that book has landed him the coveted opportunity to be a presenter at this year's Tribune Lit Fest.

The Printers Row Lit Fest is meant to promote Literacy with a focus on youth advancement, and Coach John Baxter's message is a perfect fit for that mission. Current USC Director of Athletics Pat Haden said, "What Makes Coach Baxter so different, so unique, is his ability to teach, motivate and relate to young people on so many levels. His ability to lead them to academic and lifelong success is unparalleled in our industry."

During a time of so much debate around education, Coach Baxter's message provides a fresh and invigorating outlook that is both inspiring and useful for parents, teachers, and coaches who desire to see young people reach their highest potential.
