“Looking back this was probably the most pivotal part of my life. Ken-Rock keep me busy so I wasn’t running the streets like my other peers were not as fortunate. It gave me a father figure through my coaches that I did not have. . Ken-Rock was the reason I played sports in high school and my senior year was named athlete of the year for the entire conference.  I believe the things I was taught from the Ken-Rock Community Center made this an easy transition for it to happen.  There is so much more to tell but all of this was made possible because of Ken-Rock Community Center giving a small little black kid a chance, keeping him off the streets and showing him that someone cares. My son plays football for the University of Texas El Paso, so it will continue because of Ken-Rock.”
