(Hopefully) good sports essays and observations for good sports by a guy who tries (and can sometimes fail) to be a good sport.

More Evidence That Bob Hurley, Sr. is a Great Coach

The Patriot League Player of the Year, Derrick Mercer, is an alum of St. Anthony's High School in Jersey City, New Jersey.

The Atlantic 10 Player of the Year, St. Joseph's Ahmad Nivins, is an alum of the same school.

You can read about the team they played on in a great book that I once posted about here.

It's great to see that both of these guys had such outstanding college careers. When I read about their high school team, there were concerns about both playing well at the next level. With Mercer, his size was an issue. With Nivins, the question was whether he was tough enough. Both have answered those questions with their play -- making their teams and themselves better in the process.
