Kevin Laue’s left arm ends at his elbow as the result of a pre-natal blood circulation restriction. Even with this limitation, Kevin excelled at basketball. Kevin attended Amador Valley High School, where he played and averaged about fifteen points, five blocks and six rebounds per game. He later enrolled at nationally ranked Fork Union Military Academy in Virginia, where he led the team in rebounding and blocked shots. He was recruited by numerous Division II and III colleges, but his dream was always to make it to Division I.
His dream was realized when he earned a Division I scholarship to Manhattan College. Kevin Laue is first one-armed athlete to play for a Division I college basketball team.
