Pete Maravich averaged over 44 points per game in his college career even before they put in the three-point line! He is the greatest college basketball player that has ever lived. He became a Christian after his NBA career ended. He then traveled to tell people about this Jesus who saved him.

When I was six, although I didn't know it at the time, I got to hear Maravich speak at a Billy Graham Crusade in Columbia, SC. The below clip is of that evening in 1987.

Less than a year after this video, Maravich had a heart attack and died. I am proud that this guy is one of my heros.
