For the record, here's a refresher course:

    Gates was an all-state tight end for his Michigan high school. But he was an even better basketball player. He decided he preferred basketball to football. Gates went to four colleges, sometimes considering playing football but always committed to basketball.

    Finally, he decided football was his true calling, largely because of his 6-4 frame, and signed with the San Diego Chargers as an undrafted free agent.</blockquote>
