Manhattan College Signs One-Handed Center Kevin Laue

Manhattan College coach Barry Rohrssen needed a big man to complete his recruiting class this season and he landed a huge one when he hauled in Kevin Laue. The fact that Laue is 6-11, 232 pounds is one thing. The fact he has no left hand is another.

Laue, who averaged 10 points and five rebounds for Fork Union Military Academy (Va.) this past season, was born with a birth defect that left him without a left arm from just below the elbow. But after a stellar career at Amador Valley HS in Pleasanton, Calif., the Bay Area product more than held his own at one of the premier prep schools in the country while playing 20 minutes a game for coach Fletcher Arritt.

Calls to Laue (rhymes with “wow”) were not immediately returned, but Rohrssen said he saw something special in Laue that made him want to take a chance on him.
