Tyvon, I remember 8th grade year Me, Ty, Rell, Jayquan, Trent & Amos, In October we joined the basketball team Tyvon was the point Guard, Rell was the shooting guard, Jayquan was power forward Amos was small forward & I was the center. That year our team was called the Panthers we played in 2 tournaments we was 10 & 1 for one tournament but we lost in the playoffs. The Second tournament we took the whole tournament called “Champs” the same year we won everybody but Jayquan, Rell & Trent was graduating going to high school. Ty and Amos and I went to different schools, Everybody else stayed at that school until the next year. The last time I saw Ty was on the train we both was on the 1 train & got off on 50th street

He said,

“What’s Good Tev”

“Nothing Chilling Bout to hit up the school, You

“Nothing Man bout to go sign in & bounce”

“Word then I’ll holla at you when I get back uptown”

The day after that he walked past my block he stopped to talk to me & jayquan on 129th, He told us he was bout to go uptown & chill with Rell, The next day some Shawty came thru the hood & was like that Ty got shot in his chest on the hill, Once I heard that I bugged out & went crazy, They said that he died once he got to the hospital on June 16th.
