ABSTRACT
The article cites that there were only a few days left in his senior year and he still hadn't made up his mind. Should he go to college? No one in his family ever had. He had three jobs in high school, but he could barely pay his bills. How could he go to college and leave them behind? When he was young, he lived in a gang-infested neighborhood in the Bronx, New York. By high school, he was on the football team and coaching basketball at the Boys&Girls Club.
