Nicholas Tolomeo profiles the 2014 Post-Gazette East Male Athlete of the Year, Gateway's Montae Nicholson.
"Montae Nicholson's speed on the football field and track was always very apparent. It was his speed in being able to transition from those sports to basketball that caught some by surprise.
Nicholson took two years off from basketball in high school and returned to the varsity team at Gateway High School for his senior year.
"He missed two years of basketball and after two weeks, it didn't look like he missed a beat," Gateway varsity basketball coach Mitch Adams said. "He is just a very strong, athletic, gifted person who was willing to do whatever and do anything that it took to win."
