Wilkes' legendary status extends beyond Stetson. His son, Glenn Wilkes Jr. is carrying on the family name down the road as the women's head coach at Rollins College. Beyond raising a coaching family, he is also credited for creating the first high-level coaches clinic where he entertained legends in his DeLand home such as John Wooden, Bobby Knight, Adolph Rupp, Red Auerbach and now current North Carolina coach, Roy Williams. These coaches learned all learned various offensive motions and defensive strategies from what many consider to be one of the sharpest minds of the game.
So, as another collegiate basketball season begins in the Edmonds Center, perhaps it will be an inspiration to current players and coaches that the court they are standing on bears the name of not only a great coach, but a great teacher of the game.
