In late February of 2008, T.J. Gessner was on the precipice of a dream. A three-year starter as point guard at Mineola High School, Gessner was at the helm of potentially the biggest upset in Mustang basketball history. The Mustangs were “George Mason/Butler-like” underdogs as the # 15 seed to the # 2 seed and perennial County title contenders from South Side High School.
