The journey of Ivan McFarlin:

The O’Colly did a fantastic story on the life of former Oklahoma State basketball player Ivan McFarlin.

Because McFarlin was a standout power forward at Oklahoma State from 2001-05 after one redshirt year, he can pass the wisdom of coach Eddie Sutton to another generation of players, but McFarlin’s athletic career isn’t the only experience that prepared him for this opportunity. The lessons McFarlin learned in sports and the skills he used in the workforce weave together to influence his people-oriented coaching style.

“My basketball career was over,” McFarlin said. “But I felt that I had so much knowledge to give to young kids that (are) in my same situation when I was in high school getting ready to go to college, and I just want to give them as much info as I can.” {O’Colly}
