Desmond Owino has been a big surprise

Six months ago Sanderson High's Desmond Owino had never touched a football, had no clue to how to wear a football uniform and didn't have the slightest idea of how the game was played. Today, he is the object of great desire by programs such as N.C. State and North Carolina. Colleges are lining up to offer the 6-foot-5, 240-pound athlete a football scholarship. "Unbelievable," Owino said last week when he reflected on the steadily increasing number of scholarship offers. (Charlotte Observer)
