Whatever your membership category, you’re sure to find something to like on PEARL. Check it out, and let us know what you think.

Voice preview: Football coach overcomes odds and inspires players

You can keep reading this story at the link below or in your copy of the November 2021 Voice magazine.

When LaDontay Bell came on as the head football coach for the Chester High Clippers in 2016, he knew he had his work cut out for him in a troubled school district. But he never could have imagined that over the next few years he would see not one, not two, but three of his young players killed by street violence.

Bell, who also teaches 9th grade physical education, told his story over a phone call at 8 p.m. on a Thursday, after he had just dropped off the last of his players at home. It’s a commitment he took on after the death of 16-year-old Zion Abdullah, who was shot and killed while walking to school in June 2017.

“Myself and Dr. Boeing, who was the superintendent at the time, were at Zion’s funeral, and he said to me, ‘What is it that you need?’ And I responded, ‘I need a van. I need transportation. I don’t want any of my players walking again,’” Bell said.

The election is this Tuesday!
