The Sweet Sixteen was written by Collegiate Men's Basketball coach Austin McBeth. With the increase in the popularity of sports, young men and women are learning a great deal about love and authority from coaches in today's culture. The impact that coaches at every level are leaving on their athletes is greater than it's ever been.

McBeth's purpose in writing The Sweet Sixteen is to start the conversation about the abusive atmosphere coaches have created, by looking at what the Bible says about love. 1 Corinthians 13:4-8a talks about sixteen characteristics of love that McBeth breaks down to shine a light on the increasing misuse of such a powerful word and how coaches can begin to love their players in a way that will leave an impact long after their playing career has ended.

Love is



Does not envy

It does not boast

Is not proud

Does not dishonor others

Is not self-seeking

Is not easily angered

Keeps no record of wrongs

Does not delight in evil

Love rejoices in the truth

Always protects

Always trusts

Always hopes

Always perseveres

Love never fails

McBeth says, "Regardless of whether you consider yourself a Christian, the concepts in this book will help you become a more effective leader. The Sweet Sixteen is not only beneficial for coaches, but for parents, teachers and anyone in a leadership position."

Becoming a Sweet Sixteen coach, parent, or leader will be one of the most challenging and rewarding things you will ever do. Be blessed as you read!
