In the mist of the troubling moments surrounding Paterson, New Jersey they still manage to move forward in the best positive ways possible.
This past Friday I attended Rosa Parks High School to watch the play ” HAM ” written by historic writer Langston Hughes and it was a very uptempo & enjoyable play. One of the actors in the play is John F. Kennedy high school point guard Alphonso Gee Who had an exceptional year last season for the John F. Kennedy High School Knights Basketball team. Alphonso led the team to the finals of their county tournament and to the state sectional semi-finals. He averaged 22.4 ppg and has surpassed the 1000 point career total as only a sophomore.
Not only is Alphonso won player of the year for the JFK Knight, he also is a young man of many talents who brings smiles to the faces of those who follow him on social media & in person. Alphonso’s role in the play this past Friday was played as Gilbert and he was a perfect fit for that role and also played another role showing off his dance moves in one of the scenes during the play. ( the crowed was enjoying every moment of it lol )
Now, even though Alphonso is very young he is full of spirit, positive energy & very talented at all the things he does to keep a smile on peoples faces. In moments like this paterson, New Jersey must keep their eyes on more positive young people such as the gentleman Alphonso Gee who gives his city something positive and entertaining to look forward to. I myself will be keeping an eye out on this young man because he is the future and he is doing what he is suppose to be doing right now to insure he becomes something bigger in the future.
spread Peace always,
