Success can be defined in many different ways. 
For some it is all about the fame, while others look at your wealth and still others look at how powerful you are. Then there are those who measure it in seeing a dream come true and having the people that matter surrounding you. 
Starkville's Travis Outlaw falls into the latter category. Sure the National Basketball Association player has the name recognition that comes with it, but for the former Yellowjacket it is more about the journey that got him where he is and the ones that supported him along the way.
"Along with success you need family and friends," Outlaw said. "That is what I think of when I think success and I try to give back because everybody that is here supported me. Not just through my professional career, but in high school and growing up."
