Marriottsville, MD--1/4/14--Rayna Dubose is Marriotts Ridge High School boys' JV basketball coach. In the background, members of her team wait until it's time to leave for an away game. Rayna Dubose is one of the Women with Influence profiled in the February issue of Howard Magazine. Sixteen years ago, the Columbia resident was a varsity basketball player on a full-ride scholarship at Virginia Tech when a bout with meningitis left her a quadruple amputee. She went on to lead a jet-setting life as a motivational speaker, but today, it's her role as a coach she finds most inspiring. Algerina Perna/Baltimore Sun Staff.
