About Coach Lawson…

A Proven Winner, A Proven Leader, A Proven Success Coach!

Lawson was born and raised in the small town of Conway, Arkansas.
The youngest son of Boyd W. and Elnora Pilgrim, with his 3 brothers and 3 sisters lived in a small 3-bedroom house – filled with LOVE.

Lawson’s Precious Parents taught him and his siblings: to focus on “What Really Matters” – Always treat People the same way you want to be treated, Always give more than expected, and Always make a Positive Impact in the Lives of Others.
(Our Family’s Golden Rule.)

As a gifted Basketball Player, Lawson accomplished just about every award possible – including a 1976 High School All-American, the 1976 Arkansas High School Player of the Year, the 1981 AIC Player of the Year Award, a Two-Time NAIA All-American at Hendrix College, and inducted into the Prestigious 2021 Arkansas Sports Hall of Fame.

Early in his Life, Lawson realized he could do much more than just play basketball.
He began to gain pinpoint focus, practicing on developing “Daily Success Habits” in whatever endeavor he pursued, which proved to be the cornerstone of his successes.

A Decker Certified Communicator, and Over 30 years as an Expert Authority on Peak Performance and Professional Development, Lawson continues to conduct his “Unique, High-Energy, Interactive, and Fun-filled” Success Coaching Sessions, Team-Building Workshops, and Boot Camps for School Districts, Corporations, as
well as, for Organizations.


I’m sure your success has not come easily. What challenges have you had to overcome along the way?

Lawson, through the years, was able to reach his goals, both personal and professional, through his faith in Jesus Christ, by never, ever, ever giving up no matter what the adverse situation, never looking back, and by accepting adversity as an opportunity to better prepare for the many successes he knew he was getting closer and closer to.
