Pat Conroy“I was born to be a point guard, but not a very good one.”

"There was a time in my life when I walked through the world known to myself and to others as an athlete. It was part of my own definition of who I was and certainly the part I most respected. When I was a young man I was well-built and agile and ready for the rough and tumble of games, and athletics provided the single outlet for a repressed and preternaturally shy boy to express himself in public…I lost myself in the beauty of sport and made my family proud, while passing through the silent eye of the storm that was my childhood.”
