MaxPreps recently published a well-written feature on Saginaw High’s Christian Vaughn-Dawkins.
I must say that CVD is probably the best prospect on Saginaw High’s basketball team, and I’m not being the least bit cheeky. He’s a good basketball player in his own right, but I’m talking about the bigger picture: the game of life, many call it. In that game he’s a blue-chipper.
CVD is a go-getter, a young man with probably more ambition than any 17 year old I know. This weekend’s “Show Your Heart” tournament in Saginaw, CVD’s tribute to his late brother Dorian, is just the latest example of why being young isn’t a worthy excuse for much of anything.
He’s setting a good example for his peers; I hope they’re watching.
