Yeah he played a bit as a teen, but didn't really like it. He went to Georgetown and the coach saw him walking around campus, and begged him to play. He didn't get much playing time until his junior year.
But yeah, he didn't play until later in life. I believe he was like 24 his junior year. (I could be off by a year or two)
