Houston Cypress Falls coach Kirk Eaton walked into school on April 9 at about 6:20 a.m. Classes didn't start for another 70 minutes.

Two of his assistant coaches had already beaten him to work. And so did one of his players.

"Here's my favorite story about him," Eaton said. "You remember the night he committed? The next day, he's the first person I saw. He's standing there at the water fountain. I said, "Hey big fella, what are you doing here?' "
