For years I've watched Maryland forget many of its sons and daughters of the game of basketball. Many top basketball players go on to do great things and have great careers but are often forgotten because of the stumbling boxes they faced in life and in their careers. Majority of these players were at one point touted for greatness but were abandoned after they did not live up to the expectations of the media and all spectators who have a biased opinion about only being successful if one reaches a "Big Six" conference or reaching the NBA. Stories are then fabricated and truths become distorted and people no longer know the truth about many of Maryland's best basketball players and what success they've obtained. Today that is changed. Forgotten Soldiers is a column that will tell the stories of many of the individuals who have fallen victim to this abandonment. It will finally put to rest the false rumors and speak of the truth, the success these various basketball players have had over the years.
