Duquesne player who nearly died earns degree

first_imgPITTSBURGH (AP)—Fittingly, Sam Ashaolu was standing on the court at a pregame shootaround, wearing his Duquesne University basketball sweats, when he received the best news of his life.The former player who has inspired a college campus with his determination to graduate despite being the most seriously wounded of the five Duquesne basketball players shot in September 2006 was going to receive his college diploma Dec. 17. Ashaolu nearly died of head wounds in the horrific shootings that followed a dance, rocking an urban campus that had just been chosen as one of the nation’s safest.He needed multiple operations to save his life, endured seizures and recurring hospital stays and, months after his recovery was under way, was told he couldn’t play again because it was too risky to remove bullet fragments lodged in his brain.“At any given moment, I was told, I could go to sleep and not wake up,” Ashaolu said Dec. 16.Many athletes might have become angry, given up, quit school and begun their adult life with a grudge that would last a lifetime. Instead, Ashaolu told Duquesne athletic director Greg Amodio and coach Ron Everhart he wanted to stay with the team in any role and return to as normal a college life as possible.Then, remarkably, he did exactly that.“If somebody would have told you while he was in that hospital bed, battling for his life, that he would have a college degree in three years, most people would have said that’s not possible, that’s unbelievable, that can’t happen,” Everhart said. “It’s a modern-day miracle.”Another player who was seriously wounded, Stuard Baldonado, left school without playing. Two others, Shawn James and Kojo Mensah, turned pro before their senior seasons in 2008-09 and didn’t graduate. Ashaolu and Aaron Jackson, who received a minor wound, became close friends and helped turn around a Duquesne program that was 3-24 in 2005-06.Jackson did it on the court as an all-Atlantic 10 guard who led the Dukes to a 21-13 record last season, the A-10 championship game and the NIT, where he scored 46 points during a double-overtime loss at Virginia Tech.Ashaolu did it off the court, serving as a team manager, a teammate in pickup games and a role model for every college player who has experienced adversity.“I overcame a lot,” said Ashaolu, a 6-7 power forward who played at Lake Region State College in North Dakota before transferring to Duquesne. “I hope it inspires some other kids who go through the same thing I went through to keep fighting.”Everhart and Amodio said every new Duquesne student quickly learned about Ashaolu’s relentless commitment to graduate. He went to school in the fall, spring and summer, rarely missed class, worked daily with speech therapists and at the school’s learning lab, and nearly became like a son to assistant director of student services Kevin Deitrick.“He’s so resilient, so determined,” Everhart said.Jackson, now playing in Turkey’s top pro league, said Ashaolu’s perseverance made him realize the minor problems in his own life were exactly that—minor.“It’s remarkable seeing the things he does, seeing him wake up and take his medicine and go to class, come back, take his medicine and then go to night class,” Jackson said. “It makes you want to pray to God, ‘Thank you for giving this man another chance and everyone another chance.’ It’s going to be truly remarkable to see him walk across that stage and get that degree. It’s going to be a lot of tears, a special day.”Deitrick and Amodio gave Ashaolu big hugs upon delivering the news at about 3 p.m. EST last Wednesday that he had passed his final class and could take part in Duquesne’s winter commencement 24 hours later.Ashaolu and his family sued the university 15 months ago in a still-unresolved case, saying better security should have been offered to prevent the shootings, yet he never considered transferring. And Duquesne never took him off scholarship.“You talk about somebody who’s overcome the ultimate obstacle,” Amodio said. “A little over three years ago, we didn’t know what the future held for Sam.”That future could be in—yes, basketball. Ashaolu, whose older brother, John, is the director of basketball operations at East Carolina, wants to stay in the sport and work with youngsters. He will travel to his Toronto home for the holidays—he turns 27 on Christmas—but will return to Pittsburgh after Jan. 1 to begin searching for a job and to follow the Dukes.“I’m close to a lot of the guys,” Ashaolu said.Those Dukes players—and their coach—look to Ashaolu as a source of motivation.“It’s the biggest win of my basketball career,” Everhart said. “I can’t think of many things in my life that have been a whole lot more special than Sam handling the adversity that he’s had to handle through the shooting, and putting himself in a position now to graduate. I think that’s about as good as it gets.” AN INSPIRATION—Sam Ashaolu, one of five Duquesne University basketball players shot in September 2006, sits in the school gymnasium as the team goes through some drills during practice at the A.J.

Kootenay Lake Fishing Report — More Rainbows than Bull Trout

first_img Hope this helps with your next trip. We experienced some warmer weather throughout the month of February and people just wanted to get outdoors. So, we spent a lot of time on the water in the past few weeks. This spring like weather also saw more activity from our fish Kokanee fishing in the lower west arm provided some fun mornings as well.  The weekend fishery had us managing to catch some beautiful Kokanee in the 11 – 15 inch range.  Always great for a fish fry.   What are they biting on??? We have been running lighter tackle because of the abundance of smaller fish, and that has helped make it exciting. Lots of Rainbows in the 2 – 4 pound range have put up good fights on the fly rods or ultra light rods.  Although when the 12 pound fish hit, that was a bit of a struggle. Makes for an exciting adventure. Just have to keep experimenting.  Columbia River: Rainbows from 2 – 12 pounds were being caught, as well as Bull Trout up to 12 pounds.  Definitely more Rainbows than Bull Trout though. Our best luck has been on our Bucktail flies.  The common colors have been working best.  Purple/pink, grey/pink, and grey/white have been my favorites.  Lucky numbers:  202, 207, 210, 215, and 224 have been my best. Also my favorite #10 Lyman plug has been producing, as well as good ole #69 or ‘Shizzam’ as we call it. Similar to the last few months, most of our fish have been caught on the surface.  We are seeing the majority of fish on the sonar down deep.  However, when they decide to feed, they have been coming to the surface.  Well, that about sums up our fishing for the past few weeks. A lot of these fish are really fat at this time of year.  So, the chance at hooking into a 10 pounder is always there at this time.  Most of our fish have been the typical Columbia River size. Rainbows between 16 – 22 inches have been very common, with the odd fish being over 24 inches.  Definitely my favorite time of year to be on the river. The lack of snow lately has brought us some new clientele. Our ski groups have been experiencing something new to them. Most of our skiers had never planned to go fishing in the middle of the winter and they were happily surprised. I think we have created a new activity to add to their package next year. Most days we managed to hook into 5 or 6 fish, although we did have quite a few days with 10 – 12 fish coming to the boat.  Lots of action for February. Our best techniques have been drifting with bait or bottom bouncing with bait.  Although, we have been able to persuade some big fish to take the fly lately.  Nymphing has been most productive on the fly rod, but streamer fishing should be working soon. Looking forward to this next month on the river as well.  As it can provide some of the best river fishing available. Expecting to see some ‘Big boys’ rise to the occasion.  Stay tuned………………… We have fired up the jet boat once again and the warmer weather has made for some comfortable days on the river.  We’ve had some spectacular days out there with 10 – 15 Rainbows coming to our line.  By Kerry Reed, Reel Adventures SportfishingKerry Reed of Reel Adventures Charters is back and ready to give fishermen the edge on where to catch the big one.Kootenay Lake:  Tight lines……………….last_img read more
