Building Your Legacy
Dr. Nate Hearne
Dr. Nathanial Hearne, epitomizes what “up by the bootstraps” stands for. An educator, motivator, mentor, executive, Pastor, trainer…and ultimately… the man who has led countless individuals to excel far past their expectations and even their dreams. He was instrumental in combining education with athletics much to the chagrin of some coaches while earning him the love and respect of those he molded into men.
Dr. Hearne played an important part in the lives of those football players and coaches who the film, “Friday Night Lights” was all about. As Assistant Coach he instilled a love of honor and sportsmanship in every team member as he led them in strength and stamina conditioning. The Permian High School team became National Football Champions in 1989 and State Champs in 1991.
In this episode, Dr. Hearne talks about the challenges and obstacles he encountered with creating his legacy and helping others do the same.
