MORE DAYTON FLYERS COVERAGE
»Farrell back with Flyers 10 years after he left
»NEW COACHING STAFF FEATURES: Darren Hertz; James Kane; Anthony Solomon; Ricardo Greer; Devin Davis
The gritty and fearless Dayton Flyers guard from Chicago’s South Side — who in his four seasons at UD was part of a just-graduated class that won a record 102 games and made four straight NCAA Tournaments — was asleep in his Caldwell Street apartment April 4 when word came that the family home had been destroyed by fire.
The place was so special to him. It’s where he learned to play basketball with an uncle on a hoop in the alley. It’s where nine family members — his mom and sister, three great aunts, a great uncle, a cousin and her daughter — all were living when the fire hit.
The place has meant so much to him that he has commemorated the corner where the house stands — 86th and Union — with a likeness of the green street signs tattooed on the inside of his right forearm.
