Being that I work with kids, this is a touchy subject and hurt my heart to see it happen. As a native Clevelander, I have been hearing about Tony Farmer since he stepped on the court as a freshman star at Garfield High School in Garfield Heights, OH (A suburb of Cleveland). Tony is a 6’7 gifted wing player ranked nationally with offers from schools like Michigan, West Virginia, Illinois and other Division I schools.
One morning not too long ago, he decided to put his hands on his girlfriend. He kicked, punched, and dragged her and it was all caught on tape by her apartment complex. He was just sentenced this week to three years in prison for his actions. Tony was supposed to be starting his senior year of high school not going to prison.
I hope all you kids out here pay attention to this story and THINK BEFORE YOU ACT. One bad decision could change your life forever!
