“I am grateful for the opportunity to play the game I love as my profession. Whether it has been school work or basketball, I learned that greatness can only be achieved if you are willing to put in the work. You do not get out of life what you want, you get what you have earned. You have greatness within you. I encourage you to keep a positive attitude, and know that failure is not an option and you will 'Reach the Greatness in You'.” -E’Twaun Moore
