    That simple, yet gigantic step is usually the first step to success in any endeavor.

    For countless boys growing up in Kentucky, playing basketball in the recreation leagues, middle schools and high schools that dream starts with eventually wearing a blue and white uniform and running onto the floor at Rupp Arena. 

    Somewhere along the way, the cruel realization hits that the dream is bigger than one’s basketball ability.

    Jarrod Polson was no different.

    In many ways, that is.
