Dontavious Bennett was like any other kid growing up in West Point; he played football and baseball and hung out with his friends. But even that wasnâ€™t enough to keep him grounded.
â€śHe still had all this energy, always running around wanting to kick me,â€ť his mother Tamika Bennett recalls. â€śHe was full of energy, always busy, so we figured weâ€™re going to put this to use. We met his sensai, Master Nash at a baseball game and asked if he was still doing the school. He said yes, so we told him weâ€™re going to bring our boy down. And heâ€™s been doing it ever since.â€ť
