Shot for the ages

John Potter makes no false claims about his basketball abilities. He's the first to admit he's slow and can't really jump or shoot well. And at 37 years old, there's no way he could possibly keep up with the speed and agility of the game as played at the community college level. So what is Potter doing playing basketball this season at Modesto Junior College? Chasing a dream hard enough to catch it.
