Coach Gaines recruited both Sleepy (Rob Carpenter) and me to play basketball for Winston-Salem State University (WSSU) in 1984. Because we were both freshmen, we clicked right away. We used to play one-on-one in the old practice gym, challenging each other and helping each other improve. Those were great times!As a way to give back to the men's athletic department at WSSU, I established a scholarship fund. Sleepy saw an interview I did for WSSU's Legacy Week in 2021 and called to see how he could help. He suggested that we collaborate on a children's book and donate a portion of the proceeds to the athletic department.I thought it was a wonderful idea because it could provide a constant stream of financial support for the athletic department and WSSU, in addition to other donations. Most importantly, the book encourages children to read, grow and learn about our great historically black colleges and universities (HBCUs)!
