“I love a good comeback story and this one has it all.” – Tony Romo, Dallas Cowboys Quarterback
“This beautifully written story is about the fight and determination they showed to help create the highest of standards for our men’s basketball program.” – Kim Mulkey, Head Coach Baylor Women’s Basketball
“... a moving story of personal redemption and an eyewitness account of the beginning of one of the sport’s greatest success stories ever.” – Fran Fraschilla, ESPN Analyst
Accusations, attempted cover-ups and betrayal surrounded the summer of 2003 ending with the disintegration of a rising basketball program.  Those events ripped my life apart.  Playing basketball for Baylor University was the realization of a lifelong dream.  But I could have never foreseen the devastation that would rock our foundation.
Coach Scott Drew took over a broken program and his vision of “hope in the future” was hard to swallow.  Yet, in the midst of so much pain, a miracle happened.  Our brotherhood of “Leftovers” banded together.  We were considered the underdogs, yet that didn’t deter our desire to play.
As co-captain of that team, I tell a story of tragedy, personal struggle, anger, shaken faith and perseverance.  Surprisingly, I learned that we inspired our university, community and nation.  The Leftovers is the story behind that story.
