Brotherly Love

Todd Rosiak of the MJS delivers a gem today .... a feature on the relationship between Dominic James and his brother Germayne James, a senior guard at Division III Lakeland College up in Sheboygan.

An excerpt of note:

Raised in a loving but troubled household as youngsters - for a time the brothers lived with their grandparents because their father was absent and their mother was for a time incapable of caring for them - the two quickly latched onto each other, with Germayne in many ways serving as a father figure to Dominic. The two could usually be found on the concrete slab outside their home practicing their dribbling or at the nearby Boys' Club.

Here is the link to the full text. Nice job, Todd.
