Basketball player Jerri Taylor is about to begin her Junior season on the Xavier University women’s team, but her journey to becoming a Division-1 player was not an easy one. She was kicked out of high school and her father was sent to prison. But by taking his advice, she overcame the odds stacked against her. ‘People wrote her off,’ Jerri’s dad said. ‘But I kept writing her letters and at the end of every one I said ‘prove them wrong,’ and she did.’ ” (WSJV South Bend) Thanks, Andrew!
