Be 'the expert' on your life

A record-breaker at Wake Forest and in the NBA, Tyrone "Muggsy" Bogues ('87) remains one of the most popular Demon Deacons of all time. It's hard to imagine that the former basketball star is 50 and a grandfather now, perhaps better known by a younger generation for his appearance in the "Space Jam" movie than for his athletic moves as a 5-foot-3-inch player on the court. In Charlotte these days he's known for another starring role, one he shares with daughter Brittney Bogues ('09). They are working with at-risk middle and high school students through their Always Believe nonprofit.

Senior Editor Kerry M. King ('85) visited the Bogues family recently to learn about the lessons they impart to young people. "Don't let anyone get you off (your) path and destroy the dreams and vision that you have," Muggsy says. He has lived that lesson. Read about their latest venture here.

Go Deacs!
