 NEW YORK (AP) -A basketball player missing his left hand has received a scholarship to play for Division I Manhattan College next season.
Kevin Laue is a 6-foot-10 center whose left arm ends just past the elbow. A California native, he played a postgraduate season for Fork Union Military Academy in Virginia this year hoping to impress college coaches. Laue averaged about 10 points and five rebounds competing against many Division I prospects.
Laue says he was wondering whether he would realize his dream of playing Division I basketball before Manhattan contacted him just over a week ago. He signed with the team Wednesday.
Fork Union coach Fletcher Arritt says Laue's shot-blocking skills and ability to run the floor will make him an effective college player.
