Food for the Soul

A simple poker game has changed the fortunes of a local student and a restaurant owner.

To win in poker, you have to be at the right place at the right time, and sometimes that's what you need to succeed in your career.

Just ask Mesa State student Maurice "Mo" Miller, who is turning his passion in the kitchen into a career.

His basketball team is his second family, and for the past few years, he would make his teammates feel like they were still at home.

Especially during times when many people try to be with their family.

One night playing poker at the Stadium Sports Bar in Clifton, Mo and the other players started getting hungry, but the kitchen was closed.

"So a friend said we should make Mo go back there and cook," Miller says.

He brought out his best dish, heaping plates of soul food.

For the past month, it's been a new tradition... Soul Food Sundays.

Finally, southern flavor has made it's way to the Rockies.
