By age 12, Battier played the trumpet so well he was first chair in Birmingham’s annual youth concert orchestra. It was a big youth orchestra, needing 106 chairs for the trumpets alone. He wanted to attend Detroit Country Day in the seventh grade and was accepted with a near-perfect entrance-exam score. What school wouldn’t want a student who, a couple years later, would begin spending his New Year’s Eves listing on index cards the 10 goals he wanted to accomplish over the next year? Some ACC players have had to be slipped past the admissions board, but Battier wasn’t one.

The other, on his chest, combines the Japanese word for courage with another Bible verse, Joshua 1:9 (“Be strong and of good courage; do not be afraid, nor be dismayed, for the Lord your God is with you wherever you go”).

The conference office, to its everlasting credit, has kept not just a record of first-team, second-team, and (since 1990) third-team All-ACC performers, but the actual votes earned by everyone on the teams as well.
