Bumped. Congrats to Kevin. GO BRUINS. -N
Kevin Love received Gatorade's male high school athlete of the year award today. The award will be part of ESPN's upcoming ESPY awards show; Love's segment is to be recorded this evening at the Kodak Theatre. [Fox - sorry for the fishwrap cite, its all I can find at the moment]
Oden won the same award last year as a high school senior, then helped Ohio State reach the NCAA championship game. Now Love must assume similar expectations of becoming an impact college player, and Oden said from playing against him in camps and competitions, Love is capable of doing just that.
It was the fifth year Gatorade has chosen a national athlete of the year, and three of the previous winners -- Oden, LeBron James and Dwight Howard -- went on to become No. 1 NBA picks.
Also, Love is on campus; according to the cited article, he is taking a history class during the summer session that started this week.
