But for Kelvin Thomas, sports can also lead to seeing some of the best the human spirit has to offer.

“There was a young lady who played basketball at Elizabethton High School who signed with Tusculum (College); she tore her ACL (anterior cruciate ligament) one month later,” Thomas said. “Now, she’s working hard and diligently to continue playing at Tusculum. Knowing that she wanted to play college basketball is helping her overcome that injury.

“For a young person to do that is exciting to see.”

That young lady, Morgan Depew, was featured on Thomas’ TV show, “The Scoreboard Sports Show,” which airs Sundays at 10 a.m. on WKPT.
