Our Mission

The WinTheDay Foundation is a Christian-based, non-profit organization. Our sole focus is on motivating, inspiring and providing educational opportunities for the underserved youth of our local service area. We accomplish this through the utilization of free sports camps, motivational speakers and after school programs.

Each one must do just as he has purposed in his heart, not grudgingly or under compulsion, for God loves a cheerful giver.”

2 Corinthians 9:7

Heaven got a little more crowded on Monday, June 5. Surrounded by his loving family, our Founder, Ronnie Coker, moved Home. Ronnie’s personality was larger than life in some ways. When you listen or read the impact he had…and will continue to have…on his athletes, students and those around him, that impact is larger than life.

Ronnie was a man of great passion, someone whose mind was going a million miles a minute at all times. In trying to narrow down the best way to describe the vision of WinTheDay – Motivate, Inspire, Transform, was where he settled. Why those three words? The message is simple –


Motivate - Whatever it is, stay motivated


Inspire - Remain inspired when things get tough


Transform - Transformation will come when you

Those three words still apply to the vision today. Even in his final days on this earth, Ronnie did not quit. That is not a reflection on his desire to see Jesus face to face, but he wanted that to be on God’s timing and not his. He continued to pursue being motivated and inspired until he was completely transformed and was healthy, healed and whole in the presence of Jesus.

Ronnie will be missed more than there are words to express, but we will remain focused and WinTheDay on his behalf. As we continue with the mission of this organization, please contact us if you are interested in learning more about what we do. This is not over. God was, is, and will always be faithful.


Coach Coker – A man that is all things to all people. A man of faith, a father, a friend, and a Hall of Famer. His accomplishments are too many to list, but those pale in comparison to the impact he has had on the lives of everyone he has touched. I used to say that everything Coach Coker touched turned to gold. He has been a cornerstone for the culture that was established at Airline High School, but before his tenure at the “A” he did the same for Parkway High School, Byrd High School, and Captain Shreve High School. With every stop he has made, his fingerprints are all over the school and community.

When I think of comparisons to Coach Coker, my immediate response turns to the book of Acts and the subtle mention of Barnabas. Barnabas’ surname means Son of Encouragement and he was instrumental in what the Apostle Paul would have to deal with. This is a gift of God and this is what Coach Coker has been blessed to have bestowed upon him. He has been an encourager to so many students, teachers, and to me personally. No matter what the case—his positivity WINS THE DAY. I will never be able to thank him enough for the man he is and the man he is becoming. The best way to describe Coach Coker is that he is a CHAMPION. May God continue to bless him beyond what he can ask or imagine.

I’m so grateful for Coach Ronnie Coker and his influence in my life. As a former player on a team he coached, I know firsthand of the sacrifice, hard work and dedication he puts forward once committed to a cause. For a long time, it was the game of baseball that had his heart. Now, it’s his personal relationship with Jesus. Spend any amount of time talking to him, and it won’t take long before you hear about his faith. He loves Jesus, and he loves pointing others to him. He’s the epitome of the organization he leads by how he encourages, uplifts and inspires us all to Win the Day.
