Meet Georgia's Gordon College Point Guard Lamar Elston, a Baltimore native

(BALTIMORE – December 26, 2008) - And #2 for Barnesville, Georgia's Gordon College, playing guard for the men’s basketball team at 5'9" is Baltimore’s own Lamar Elston. A business admin major, Elston is interested in real estate and making money in a positive way.

 

No stranger to struggle, Elston is a gem of his grandmother’s joy. She is a resident of Park Heights and named Catherine Taylor, aka Ms. Kitty.


Education, as Elston and countless others know, is the key – particularly for African Americans. Easily, Elston could have chosen to sell drugs, get involved in gangs, or most anything else to contribute to a key 44% demographic of America’s prisons: Black men.

Instead, he has chosen to embrace a lifestyle that will only lead him to success.

 

Our prayers are with Elston, and anybody else out there who comes from the ‘hood and who has made it their business to do something positive with their life.

 

Life is all about choices. And so, we celebrate Elston and what for that which he is aiming: A better life. And a better life not just for him, but for his peeps.

 

Bless you, Lamar Elston! So many people look up to you and view you as hope that even a black man in America can be most anything he chooses. Also, best of wishes on a continued winning season (9-4).
