VIEWS: DeKalb Olympians show there's potential in us all
DeKalb natives Grant and Ross James each have the 6-foot-6 body of a basketball player, the lungs and legs of an elite cross country runner, and the poise of a marksman, and the pair is set to compete in the 2012 Summer Olympic Games in London starting this month.
But you won’t remember reading about the twins’ athletic feats in high school, and most readers probably never knew about their athletic gifts when the pair walked the halls of what is now Huntley Middle School.
The duo never played football or basketball, although coaches pined for their services over the years, and only have a few years of baseball to their credit at DeKalb. They always have enjoyed outdoor sports, but team sports weren’t their thing in high school.
