#088 Precious Lives: The Crying Coach

Sep 20, 2016

If you are between the ages of eight and 48, love basketball and live in Milwaukee’s central city…you’ve probably been a part of Warning’s basketball league. Over 40 years old, the Warning basketball league is the third oldest in the nation. It’s a rite of passage, and for many youth, it’s the place to be over the summer, wearing the colored t-shirt representing your team. But last year was a rough year for the league. Two players died within the first week - Tariq Akbar, 14 and Giovonnie Cameron, 13. Both were fatally shot.

Eric Moore coached Giovonnie. Most of Coach Moore’s players grew up with Gio. And now, they are back for another Warning season.
