Jim Sochor, former UC Davis head football coach (1970-1988) and College Football Hall of Fame inductee, will share insights gained as a successful coach and mentor with members of the University Farm Circle.

Sochor will speak from 2 to 4 p.m. Tuesday, Jan. 21, at the Unitarian Universalist Church, 27074 Patwin Road in rural West Davis.

Sochor, a native of San Francisco, received his bachelor’s and master’s degrees from San Francisco State University, where he subsequently served as professor and coach of basketball and football. In 1967, he earned his Ph.D. in education from University of Utah. Three years later he began coaching the Aggies, amassing a string of 18 consecutive league championships. This college football record still stands today.

Though retired from the gridiron, Sochor maintains a full schedule of speaking engagements and mentoring commitments to teams and individuals, from rodeo athletes to professional dancers. Much of his teaching is based on Eastern philosophies, and he will share his techniques that have led to successes both on and off the field.

He will talk about the ability of positioning oneself to perform at one’s highest potential and empowering ourselves so we can help empower others.

Light refreshments will be served at 2 p.m., and the lecture begins promptly at 2:20 p.m. Admission is $10, and members of the public may pay by cash or check at the door. A portion of the fee goes to the University Farm Circle Scholarship Fund.
