Kevin Cantwell became head coach of a National Collegiate Athletic Association (NCAA) Division I basketball team in 1981 when he was 32 years old. Some might say a string of coincidences or luck landed him there, but Cantwell gives the credit to God. The New York native believes God directed his path to Gardner-Webb University in 1967, where he met players and coaches who would later help him get the job.
