As a guard for Springfield (Ill.) High School in the early 90's, Shatonia Levy scored 2,043 points and made all-state teams chosen by the Chicago Tribune, Chicago Sun-Times, and the Champaign News-Gazette. It is perhaps appropriate, then, that she ended up in the newspaper biz. The brain-tumor survivor, who now runs promotions and marketing for the Houston weekly, is a high school basketball "legend," according to a profile in the State-Journal Register. "She has the best all-around skills of any kid that I have seen come out of the city," says a former coach. "Her instincts were just so good. There was nothing she couldn't do."
