In the spring of 1989, fresh off a state basketball championship, a young Shaquille O'Neal walked the graduation stage of Cole High School to the sounds of "Pomp and Circumstance" amid dreams of NCAA tournaments and NBA titles.
While not born in San Antonio, Shaq earned his high school diploma from Cole in the Alamo City 30 years ago. He led the Cougars that senior year to a 36-0 season and the state title while averaging 32 points, 26 rebounds and eight blocks.
