SCRANTON - After a career in surgery that spanned four decades, Gino Mori decided to head back to medical school in 2013 to fill some gaps in his education. After all, he completed his undergraduate education in science at Pennsylvania State University in 1953, the year scientists James Watson and Francis Crick are credited with discovering the structure of DNA. "You can imagine that basic science had changed quite a bit," he said with a smile. The 83-year-old physician completed about 40,000 surgeries in his 371/2 years in medicine, but after retiring Jan. 1, 2001, his lifelong thirst for knowledge pushed him back to school.

SOMETIMES IT doesn't matter nearly as much where you came from as how far you believe your talent, will and dreams can take you. Even if you're from Scranton and determined at a young age that what you wanted most of all was to become a big-time golfer. Welcome to the journey according to Temple's Brandon Matthews. Usually, if the PGA Tour is the carrot you're chasing, the best route is to play for a program that's south of the Mason-Dixon Line, which at least allows you to work on your game year-round.
