His story, however, never fails to hold that attention for audiences of all ages.  The first player missing a limb to play NCAA Division 1 basketball, he overcame the early death of his father, a challenging home environment and a league of critics to become one of the top high school basketball players in his home state of California while earning a scholarship to join the Manhattan College Jaspers.  Today he travels the globe, inspiring audiences in Asia, Africa and Europe as well as at home.  He has spoken at the United Nations in New York, serves as a spokesperson for the Boys and Girls Club of New Jersey, and is a board member at New Jersey Special Olympics.  To learn more visit www.kevinlaue.net
