Biography

You don't see gryphons in the world very often. Much like -taurs and dragons, they're a rare species to see, and it's even rarer that they end up doing anything sportswise.

Apparently Regulus Lowenthal didn't get that message.

Born to an avian mother and feline father, Regulus is a gryphonic hybrid of snow leopard and snowy owl. Named after the famous Roman general, Regulus doesn't have basketball running in his blood, but ever since he started to walk and squawk, he's been playing with a hoop of some kind. Kiddie hoops gave way to half-sized hoops, to 8-foot hoops in the elementary schools, to the regulation 10-foot hoop in middle school and beyond. And with his arms doubling as wings, ending in five-taloned hands, he's had the benefit of the one-flap rule on his side to grab extra air on his dunks, rebound attempts and blocked shots.

He was a four-year starter at Bedford Heights Senior High School, starring as a strong power forward with shooting guard capabilities and picking up three New Hampshire state titles and one runner-up finish. He's a well-balanced player that can sway a game's outcome up close, from afar, or even in just the intangibles. Many of Regulus' opponents had never seen a gryphon before meeting him, and thus it can cause unease in his rivals' minds.

Though rejected for scholarships by most of the major schools, Regulus was picked up by Pinion State University, an FCAA mid-major school in Concord, NH, on full scholarship. During his four years at PSU, the gryphon earned his nickname, "The Roman Column" after a game in sophomore year in which he had NINE blocks.

PSU went 115-19 in his time at the school. He led the Aviators to three FCAA tournament appearances, and the team went 12-2, including a national title in his sophomore year, and quarterfinal berths in freshman/junior years. They were snubbed his senior year despite a 25-6 record, and thus his collegiate career ended on a sour note.

Still, he's by far Pinion State's leader in points, assists, and rebounds. The day his team was left out of the FCAA tournament field, The Roman Column began looking forward to his future: draft day, and the FBA. State and FCAA titles in his talons, he looks to add an FBA ring to his trophy list.

2014 Ironfur Combine
