A Look at Steven Gray and What His Trip to Africa Meant to Him

The story’s been told before, in this paper and others, but ESPN’s Dana O’Neil really captured Steven Gray, the Gonzaga guard from Irondale, in this piece. If you’re going to read just one story today, read this one.

What had he really done with himself? What had he accomplished? “I think I felt,” Gray said, pausing to search for the right word, “I think I felt closed in. I didn’t feel like I’d done anything but basketball for my entire life. I looked at it as everyone comes to college to figure out who they are. I didn’t feel like I had figured that out.”

That was before the 22-year-old Bainbridge grad  took off for Africa on what would be a life-changing trip.
