As Basketball Star

As Basketball Star

During High School was involved in Varsity Sports both in football and basketball.  Each sport held an All-Star community award.  In my senior year in basketball, they suggested you can’t play two sports, so I chose basketball as it was less injury prone.  However, my second to last final game of year against a big rival school, we had great momentum and were getting lots of turnovers for extra points, the other team was getting mad.  Then suddenly they put a new point guard in the game and I was assigned to guard him, I stole the ball and race to the other end and leaped very high in the air, the coach believes my weight led to the injury during my landing back to the ground my right pinky toe broke.  I have never been able to manage the injury playing long periods of time, my foot begins to hurt. For whatever reason, I was in the newspaper and many scouts were interested top schools.  The injury affected my later life in sports.
