Druid Hills High School     Gordon State College     Western Carolina University

A three-sport Letterman in high school, Forrest played football, basketball, and ran track. He decided to "shoot" for the NBA and focused his attention on basketball. An all-state player in Georgia, he received a split academic/basketball scholarship to play for Gordon College. During his 2-year tenure at Gordon, he led the state of Georgia in 3-pointers (3rd in the nation) averaging 24 points, 7 rebounds, and 3 assists per game. He later accepted a full-ride athletic scholarship to play Division I basketball for Western Carolina University. Only one level away from realizing his dream to play professionally, Forrest suffered a career-ending injury to his shooting hand. Fortunately in 2012, he was inducted into the Gordon State College Basketball Hall of Fame.
