Houston Summers: Heart & Desire


Coaches call it desire. Houston Summers refers to it more boldly as “my aggression.” As a child, he saw everything as a challenge. “Whether it was wrestling, football, baseball, basketball, it was really, really fun for me to go out there and compete,” he said. He needed that toughness to survive when in 2005, at age 17, he became the youngest American-born player ever drafted by the Arizona Diamondbacks. (UNC.edu)
