I was taking a nap when I woke up and saw the image above on TV. There’s been an outpouring of support for Maranatha’s Dylan Covey, who forfeited a huge signing bonus with the Milwaukee Brewers after it was learned Covey was Type 1 diabetic. The Milwaukee Journal Sentinel goes on to report that blood tests aren’t always included in physicals but one was performed on Covey, with a diagnosis of Type 1 diabetes, which often comes at an earlier age. Covey was selected with the 14th overall pick by the Brewers in the MLB Amateur Draft. Family and friends erupted in celebration when Covey’s name was announced as the 14th pick. He felt ready to turn pro and begin his road to the big leagues. The road there, however, will now take a detour, as Covey will attend the University of San Diego before he realizes his big league dream. This much is certain: It’s a matter of when, not if. I’ll go as far as saying Covey may be a top 5 draft pick in a few years, and then the celebration will be even sweeter. Good luck, Dylan.
