MOUNT VERNON, Texas — For 10 seasons with the Utah Jazz, Greg Ostertag could be funny, feisty and even frustrating.

We went to visit Greg, who talks about his family, the unusual animals on his farm, and why he still gets choked up about former Jazz coach Jerry Sloan. Watch his story to see what the former Jazz center is up to now.
