At least one person predicted greatness for Steve Slaton while he was still in the womb.
"My obstetrician said he was going to be a track star," says Slaton's mother, Juanita Tiggett-Slaton. "He'd check one side of my stomach, and Steve would be on the other side before you'd know it. I said, 'He moves like that all the time; is there something wrong?' [The obstetrician] would be looking for him and saying, 'Whoa whoa you're going to have a little track star there.'
