Spud Webb and the late Manute Bol. At 7'7" tall, Bol was one of the tallest players ever to appear in the NBA. Webb, who was 5'7" tall, was one of the shortest players in NBA history. Webb is notable for winning a 1986 slam dunk contest despite his size.
One of my heroes, Navy Seal hero, Marcus Luttrell. Saw him speak years ago, and it changed my life, with the love, courage, and loyalty he spoke of his fellow Seals. It was raw, unpolished, and moving. Looking forward to seeing the movie, the book is incredible too.
