Firefly's mom tossed him a bounce pass when he was three years old, and the next thing she knew, he was a Globetrotter. Okay, there were a few things in between. Actually way more than a few things, because Firefly's living proof of what you can get if you never give up. In high school, he scored 61 points in a single game. Then he led Siena College through an amazing victory in the NCAA tourney, going six-for-six at the three-point line to beat Vanderbilt.
But even after all that, he didn't make the Harlem Globetrotters the first time he tried out. So Firefly went back to college to get a masters degree and to practice the moves that Flight Time, Scooter and Dizzy had shown him at his tryout. He kept working at it, and eventually the Globetrotters realized what they missed. Now Firefly's in red, white, and blue, and his bounce pass is even better than when he was three. He's also one of the team's best shooters, as he holds the team record of most consecutive 4-point shots made, with 10.
