Him and Kevin are really great guys. I grew up around the same area as them and had the chance to play them in basketball and football a few times. Their dad is somewhat psycho and controlling but he has raised them to be quality young men.

He talks about going through what he describes as being at the very bottom. Is that just because he wasn't getting playing time, or was he forced to quit? If he made his own decision to leave basketball, why wasn't he going to school and all that? Sorry folks, I'm just trying to understand what happened.

The part where he said he went back home and worked in a factory over the spring? 'Have you guys ever worked third? It's hard!" and also, "I stay humble after that. Any time I get down about practice I just think about that"

He does sound like he's got a good head on his shoulders; maybe it's not so bad to be a psychotic dad.

I wish we could know what exactly happened on bball team, because I loved him there, too.

My favorite quote of all time, after being benched for a few games in a row Kelvin said, "Anything coach asks of me, if coach B asks me to run to Grand Rapids and back I'll do it."

Great attitude from a benched starter.

Is that Kelvin Grady got a job, in a factory, in Michigan. There are probably a bunch of unemployed experienced factory workers in the state wondering how that happened.

That said - I'm rooting for the kid. Sounds like he got the perspective he needed.

After last saturdays game, I went to BD's Mongolian BBQ in AA and I sat at a table with my friends. About ten minutes after i sat down, Kelvin and his mom (who is white which i didnt know) sat down at the table next to us. He was in the full michigan warm ups and i congratulated him on the victory. I wonder why Kevin wasnt there with them? All in all though, he seemed like a pretty cool guy

The fact that Kelvin gets quality PT shows just how good of an athlete he is. I'm glad he stayed at the U. I'd love to see a halfback pass from Kevin to Kelvin. That would be great.
