凱文.勞伊快速贏得全世界最佳、最有成果的勵志型演說家的聲譽。將近七呎的身高、火紅的頭髮,僅僅走上講台,他就已引人矚目。不過,他的故事更讓所有年齡層的聽眾矚目。
做為第一個少了一截肢體而打「全國大學生體育協會」第一組籃球的球員,他克服了父親早逝、挑戰連連的家庭環境,與排山倒海而來的批評,成為家鄉加州頂尖高中籃球隊員之一,同時也拿到獎學金,加入曼哈頓學院亞斯勃斯球隊。

【獨臂籃球夢 凱文.勞伊】,希望將激勵人心的故事傳遞在世人中間。摘要如下:

我似乎天生就是經過特殊設計來鶴立雞群的。紅髮人口不到百分之二,我就是其中之一。身長近七呎,左手生來就沒有手掌和前臂。不僅如此,我的眼睛是棕色的,臉上不長雀斑。我後來還知道,我根本是個左撇子,這意思是,我無法使用我的慣用手。
做為一個人,我可真夠稀有。我的故事也跟我被設計的一樣,特別得很。長大以後,我媽告訴我:「上帝在你身上有特殊的計畫,他會恩待你。」從我所處的環境來看,我才不信那是真的。小男孩要出頭已經很難,而我,還常常受到排擠。…

從一開始,我的父母親對於如何養育我就常常意見相左。我爸是男人中的男人,身高六呎九吋,體內流淌著他最喜愛的「奧克蘭突擊者」美式足球隊的血液,吼叫起來,聲若他所賽的車子。韋恩.勞伊就一心一意想將自己的兒子變成大人,儘管那時我實在太小了,力未能逮。

我媽,裘蒂,則是用一種比較屬靈的方式,來教養這個總是特別凸顯的男孩。她教導我,我的生日代表著某種特殊的意義。四月十三日—4/13—在她腦中喚一段聖經經文,《腓立比書》四章十三節是這樣說的:「我靠著那加給我力量的,凡事都能做。」母親深信這段經文,確信將來我長大以後,也能體會其中的意思。
結果證實,我甚至在出生前就已經展現出那股力量了。當臍帶威脅要纏繞住我還沒長成的脖子的時候,我就用左臂制止了它。臍帶將左臂手肘以下切斷了,不過我生出來就缺少的那段肢體,看來是救了我的命。

我常跟人說,我命中注定了要嘛失去我的手臂,要嘛失去我的頭——我確信我做了正確的選擇!

Kevin Laue

Kevin Clinton Laue (born April 13, 1990) is a 6 ft 11 in (2.11 m) tall American college student and basketball player at Manhattan College. He was born missing half of one arm and has been recognized for his skills and success in overcoming adversity. In the 2008-2009 season he played at a military academy in Virginia and was a prospect for collegiate play. In March 2009 he received a scholarship to play Division I basketball for Manhattan College. A documentary film titled Long Shot: The Kevin Laue Story was released in 2012.

Biography

Due to a restriction of prenatal blood circulation, Laue was born with a left arm that ended just below his elbow; he has a short rounded stump of his forearm. His parents encouraged him to play soccer as a child, but Kevin did not like soccer. He also refused to use a prosthetic arm. He had some struggles as a youth basketball player, but by eighth grade he had grown enough that he could handle a ball with one hand and could dunk a basketball.

Competitive playing career

High school
Laue attended Amador Valley High School near his home where as a junior he played center on the varsity basketball team. He played about 23 minutes a game and averaged eight points, six blocks and eight rebounds per game.
During his junior year, he was described as the team’s star. In 2007 Sports Illustrated called him “the most exciting player in basketball” in recognition of his playing prowess with just one hand, but he missed most of his senior year due to a broken leg, (Averaging eleven points, ten blocks, and nine rebounds per game his final year).

After graduation, he enrolled as a postgraduate at Fork Union Military Academy in Virginia for the 2008–2009 school year. As of December 2008, his season statistics at Fork Union were 6.9 points and 7.4 rebounds per game. As an NCAA prospect, he received recruiting letters from Division III schools, but hoped to be able to play for a Division I team. Scouts, Inc. describes him as a “prospect that could instantly help a number of low-major Division I programs,” noting his “quick leaping ability” and effective play on both offense and defense. In March 2009 he was awarded a scholarship from Manhattan College, a Division I school.

Kevin wears size 17 shoes and can handle the ball in his large right hand, which an Amador Valley teammate said “is as big as two normal hands.” He uses his short forearm stump (which he calls his ‘nub’) to help grip the ball after catching a pass. He also uses his stump effectively in defense, despite its short length, using its surprising strength to block opposing players.

College
Laue played his first two seasons with Manhattan College under coach Barry Rohrssen and then under coach Steve Masiello. As a freshman in the 2009–10 season, Laue played in 19 games with an average 2.7 minutes per game and 0.7 rebounds and 0.2 blocks. On December 30, 2009, Laue scored his first career point with a free throw and grabbed a season-high eight rebounds in 17 minutes in Manhattan’s 86-48 loss to Vanderbilt. Laue subsequently scored on field goals in two other games.

In 2010–11, his sophomore year, Laue played in 22 games and started three games. On December 11 against Binghamton, Laue played 14 minutes and scored 6 points on 3-for-4 shooting. In that game, Laue also made 3 rebounds and 2 blocks. On December 22 against Bowling Green, Laue played 13 minutes, scored 4 points off field goals, and made 5 rebounds. Cumulatively, Laue made 21 rebounds and 5 blocks this season. In his junior year, 2011–12, Laue grabbed 9 rebounds and blocked 7 shots. Manhattan qualified for the 2012 CollegeInsider.com Postseason Tournament, but Laue did not play in the tournament.

After graduating from Manhattan College in only three years, Laue’s career totals came to 36 points, 42 rebounds, 15 blocks, 1 steal, and 1 assist.
