Tennessee State forward is proof that hard work brings success

Robert Covington’s future is bright. It could even include a career in the NBA.

Yet the 6-foot-9 junior forward from Bellwood, Ill., is just as concerned about the past he will leave behind at Tennessee State…..

“For me to be able to continue to improve and finish my career at Tennessee State is very important because I want to show other kids that you don’t have to transfer and go to another program to accomplish what you want to accomplish,” Covington said. “As long as you come in here and work hard, like I’ve done, you don’t know what you can end up doing for yourself and for this team.”
