Youth Just a Kid From Akron

Color: Grey

  • Grey

The story of LeBron James starts with the support of his birth city Akron, Ohio. As Gloria, his young mother, struggled to find steady work, LeBron endured countless moves until age nine when local youth football coach Frank Walker took him in. Having been arranged by his mother to shield LeBron from the perils of inner-city poverty, LeBron’s new home life offered the space and stability to explore his athletic potential.

As all of Akron watched him develop into the headline-grabbing phenom we’ve come to know, they steered him clear of anything that could derail his path. Reflecting on his return, LeBron said of his hometown: "It's like my father, it's like my brother, it's like my mother, it's like my grandmother, it’s like everything to me. The city looked over me, it raised me to be who I am today." Pass the story of Akron’s community and the king’s homecoming on to your little one with this youth tee.

A portion of this shirt's proceeds benefit the LeBron James Family Foundation, an Akron-based nonprofit positively impacting children and young adults through education and active-living initiatives.
