Dewayne Jefferson comes full circle

February 20, 2013

Google search “Dewayne Jefferson”, and click the first link that you see on the list of sources containing the name. It should lead you to a Wikipedia profile which shows a short, brief paragraph about an American professional basketball player.
A West Point, Mississippi native Jefferson is well traveled. And even though the Wikipedia page does not fill in the blanks, I want to make those blanks disappear and fill them in with his story.

Recently, I ran across a quote from the current Biggersville basketball coach Cliff Little in a tweet from Southern Sentinel’s Kedrick Storey. Coach Little in reference to his upcoming opponent, Blue Mountain, said that they were “hungry…They’re like a man by a dumpster looking for a crumb.” Though some may see that as a slight at Blue Mountain or maybe even a negative remark about homelessness, Coach Little’s remark about Blue Mountain was the biggest compliment.
