     LOUISVILLE - Call it a bit untraditional but Calvin Leach is fulfilling a dream.

     The Bullitt County native didn't play basketball at Pleasure Ridge Park and he is 22 years old.

     But his dream of playing college hoops led him to follow his heart.

     This fall, Leach will be attending Trinity Baptist College in Jacksonville, Fla., to play basketball.

     Leach, who still have family and friends in Bullitt County, said he sent a video of his play and he went to a summer camp at the school.

     After that, he was offered the chance to play basketball and signed his letter of intent in early June.

     He was attracted to the school due to its Christian teachings and its small setting.

     "I liked the atmosphere," said Leach.

     He hopes to see playing time in his freshman year at either the shooting guard or small forward position.

     "It was a dream and I didn't want to give up on it," said Leach.
