Those that were at the Sports Medicine South clinic in Lawrenceville, Georgia a few days ago received a worthwhile treat a few days prior to Halloween.

Washington Mystics’ Ivory Latta was on hand promoting her children’s book “Despite the Height” at Sports Medicine South this past Wednesday. The message for kids the book sends is to concentrate on the positive attributes one has and put emphasis on sharpening one’s craft instead of giving into doubts and doubters.

I had one of my favorite players tell me at the time, ‘You’re too small. You’re not going to make it in the (Atlantic Coast Conference).

Latta recently completed a 2017 season with the Mystics that saw her team advance to the semifinals of the playoffs. She was also presented with the Dawn Staley Community Leadership Award at season’s close.

I could have easily gave up, just (said) ‘I’m done. My career is over.’

Also on hand was former University of Georgia football star Rennie Curran who also promoted his children’s book, “What Does It Take to Be a Star?” where a child learns positive traits from celebrities on what being a “star” is all about.

Children which attended the event were also treated to an inflatable slide and ice cream painting along with other fun activities as well as an autograph session with Latta and Curran.
