A Nice Story

Fred Roland is on a football scholarship at Duke, which means that he's very
likely to graduate and do well in life. A lot of people probably don't
realize how much he - and his brother Calvin, who is plays basketball at VCU -
have overcome.
Their family has gone through some really tough times in recent years,
which had a big impact on Calvin.
He's found his way through it, but
it's been tough. Killer quote: "I couldn't wait to come to school
here, because I knew I'd have a place to stay. I knew I'd have food. That was
one chapter of my life I could close."

Sounds like a great kid.
