Coming From Nowhere.
Here's a nice surprise of a sports story, about Chatsworth High School graduate DeShawn Stephens.

Stephens also attended San Fernando Valley’s Chatsworth High at the same time. He, too, was a senior during the 2007-08 season. He, too, tried out for the basketball team.
He got cut.
“Every single time San Diego State comes on TV, I watch DeShawn and think, wow, who would have thought?” says , the man who cut him and is still Chatsworth’s head coach. “Honestly, if you would have seen him play in high school — 6-3, skinny, not really coordinated, not really athletic, not really committed — you would never have guessed it.
“I’ll never take credit for him in any way, shape or form. He did all that on his own. He took a very unique path to where he’s at.”
