Topic - Stephen Lumpkins
Stephen Lumpkins was willing to surrender a lot, and do it quickly, to chase a longtime dream.
Stephen Lumpkins plans to return to American University's basketball team after a missing a season while playing minor league baseball.
American's Tony Wroblicky was lounging in his room last June when the news arrived.
Earlier this month, Stephen Lumpkins became the first American University basketball player since 1990 to be drafted into the professional ranks. He just had to trade his basketball shoes for a baseball mitt in order to get there.
'We've got practice from 4 to 6, when are we done?'
"Honestly, it was miserable," Lumpkins said. "That was something that was hard for me to deal with, going out there and experiencing failure. In my life and in my basketball career at American, I didn't fail a lot. I think going forward to now, it's helped me now that I'm back the second time."
