Local teen fighter eyes his shot at the Olympics

June 29, 2011

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 wasn’t enough to keep him grounded.

“He still had all this energy, always running around wanting to kick me,” his mother Tamika Bennett recalls. “He was full of energy, always busy, so we figured we’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 we’re going to bring our boy down. And he’s been doing it ever since.”
