Character U Speaker Series: Kevin Laue, 9/11

by Tom McNamara | Aug 27, 2013

On Wednesday, September 11, Kevin Laue, former Division I college basketball player, will speak at DeSales University. The lecture will be at 3:00 p.m. in the DeSales University Center and is free and open to the public.

Laue was born with his left arm ending at the elbow because of a restriction of prenatal blood circulation. Despite this challenge, Laue succeeded in basketball becoming the first one-handed player to receive an NCAA scholarship to play Division I basketball for Manhattan College. Laue played from 2009 until 2013.

As a high school player, the February 12, 2007, issue of Sports Illustrated called him “the most exciting player in basketball.”

Character U, the first-year portion of the DeSales University Experience, is sponsoring Laue’s visit. Character U serves as a resource for first-year students to help make the transition from high school to college a little smoother, while also giving students character development opportunities through keynote speakers, diverse programs, campus events and meetings with their peer mentors.
