It's always fantastic for me to learn about "kids" that I grew up with doing fantastic as adults. Kind of proves that you are not "where" you come from but who you make yourself into. Small town people do big time things. Determination and hard work are key factors. Of course, I'm a firm believer that lady luck does help out a little sometimes.
I learned of this when speaking to a colleague at work about his son who is a senior in high school ... dreaming of a career in sports management if not the sport itself ... and his connection to this guy. No matter how far we go - something is always there to bring us back to our roots.
