Never a Sure Thing; Former Star Teaching Middle School

Terrific read here. Let it be a cautionary tale for every kid who thinks he's destined to play in the pros. Kevin Pittsnogle never put himself in that group, but the thought was that he certainly was destined for the NBA after shining for West Virginia. After all, how many men stand 6-11 and can from the outside and dribble like he can? Instead, these days, Pittsnogle is a middle school teacher and volunteer assistant high school coach in his hometown of Martinsburg, W.Va., and seems content with where he is.

Yes, it's a good read. Kevin's a success: he got his degree and is doing one of the most important and difficult jobs known to man: teaching middle school kids. I repeat: Kevin Pittsnogle a great success: wonderful college career and now doing what few can do well - teaching. Let's wish him all the best.
