The locality, where he lived was not a good one and thus police raids were something he had become habitual to, due to gang wars.
He did his schooling from Harold L. Richards High School in Oak Lawn, where he was active in sports from the early start. In school, he played football and basketball however due to his height he struggled while playing basketball. It was only towards the final years that he gained momentum and leveled up his game.
