One moment Scott May was looking forward to playing baseball in his senior year at Manatee High in Bradenton, Fla., and the next, he awoke in a hospital. Except that the next moment was two weeks later. May, the son of Pittsburgh Pirate hitting instructor Milt May, was involved in a one-car accident less than a mile from his home in Bradenton.

This is the kid who's going to rip through the framework of action sports? This kid with the ski-pole physique and the red mop atop his head? A kid who, until recently, couldn't use the car or truck he'd won in competition because he wasn't old enough to drive? Oh yes, they say, Shaun White is the one. "LeBron James is essentially the Shaun White of basketball," said Kurt Hoy, editor of Trans- World Snowboarding magazine.
