The peak of my career came toward the end of grade school when I was the starting point guard on a New England championship CYO team and was the state champ of an age-based foul shooting contest sponsored by the Elks. (The local Elks club then held a dinner in my honor. Very posh.) I continued to play basketball in high school, but a combination of a back injury and increasingly stiff competition benched me before college.
Were you a good athlete as a kid? Are you one now?
