SIDELINE OBSERVATIONS: Brad Reese makes us proud

Published: Tuesday, January 22, 2013 at 02:39 PM.

I had a good time catching up with former Laurel Hill basketball star Brad Reese in a phone interview last month.

Brad is one of my Facebook friends and I’ve managed to follow his basketball and personal journey via that social network, but there’s nothing like talking with someone, even in a phone interview, from the other side of the world.

I try not to play favorites in this job, but there are certain athletes whom I can’t help liking a little more than others.

Some of those young men or women, such as Brad, have overcome numerous obstacles in life to achieve a level of success on and off the playing field.

That deserves a bit of extra recognition.

 Other athletes have a personality that draws people to them and it’s impossible not to like them. Brad has achieved that level of success and has a personality that sets him apart from so many young people I cover.
