Former NBA center takes Eagles' reigns

Ben Handlogten's basketball journey has taken him all over the world. He played professionally in Greece, Italy, Japan, Spain, South Korea and Turkey. At age 30, Handlogten broke into the NBA, playing in the league from 2003 to 2005 with the Utah Jazz and the New Jersey Nets. But Handlogten, who was named the new head basketball coach at Southlake Christian, didn't come to the area because of basketball. Instead, it was to finally settle down with his family.
