TCU men’s basketball coach Trent Johnson may not be the most popular man these days because of his team’s 2-11 record in the Big 12 this season but he is an entertaining and wonderfully candid speaker.

He is not afraid of the truth or his opinion.

If you are a fan of basketball and candor do yourself a favor and make the “Shaping Tomorrow’s Leaders Luncheon” on Thursday, February 18 at the HOPE Family Farm Life Center on 701 Ramsey Avenue in Fort Worth, 76104.

The luncheon features Trent Johnson and former St. John’s head coach and current ESPN analyst Fran Fraschilla. Also on hand will be former Fort Worth Dunbar boys’ basketball coach Robert Hughes, who again is up for induction into the Basketball Hall of Fame.

The luncheon begins at 11:30 a.m. is scheduled for 90 minutes. Admission is $20. All proceeds go to Hope Farm, an after-school program for at-risk young men in Fort Worth.

This is not an X’s and O’s chat with two coaches but two men who have worked at shaping and molding young lives.

Johnson’s record at TCU (49-73) stinks but this as a parent you would want your son to play for this man. He is not one for excuses and he takes his role as a mentor and a teacher seriously.

Both Johnson and Fraschilla are good speakers with loads of good stories.
