((John Baker has a new passion for everything he does. At 26, he's getting his degree from Roanoke College and playing basketball for the Maroons. ((:))
In the early 90's while a Northside junior, Baker was a star tight end on the football team and an all state performer for Billy Pope's Vikings. Scholarships from Winthrop, Liberty and High point were on the table. But hype can hurt and in his senior year, Baker was dismissed from the eventual group 2A state championship runner up basketball team. ((:)) ((:))
After years of chaos and no direction, Baker decided he had had enough. He trimmed his frame down from 250 to 190 pounds, stopped partying and started praying. His turnaround began with a special meeting with coach Pope, seven years after leaving the Northside team.))
