When growing up, my mom always told me that God has some plan for me. Given my circumstances, I didn't think that was true. I was a little bit of an outcast. I was teased in school for having one hand. My father coached me in football and in soccer. My dad wouldn't treat me like I was handicapped.
I remember him being a little tough on me. He wanted to make me a boy into a man, and I was just a little young for that. My dad may have been hard on me to prepare me for disappointments in life. Looking back on it now, it makes sense.
My goal is to play in college. Hopefully I get Division One scholarship.
It's very difficult to be good enough to play at the Division One level. To have both hands working is a must. If they give you your right hand, you gotta be able to get right; if they give you the left, you gotta be able to get left.
I think it'd be very difficult to play basketball with just one arm. You really have to be a tough kid, because you are really at a disadvantage with just one arm.
The odds on him playing Division One is beyond the long shot. It's astronomical. I think people underestimate me and what I'm capable of doing. I'm gonna tell kids the story of Kevin, for time and angels do come.
It's not gonna happen.
