“I think we all have that thought when you’re growing up in the hood, that you need to be good at something to get out of the situation that you’re handed,” Vontae shared. “Better be good at something, or you’ll be stuck here, so sports was the easiest way out for us.” Therefore, not only did he play basketball and football, but to compensate for his smaller physique, Vontae also consistently practiced to be better than most.”
His athleticism caught the eye of his high school cheer coach and added him to his squad. Vontae then went on to master the craft of cheer and earned a cheer scholarship which helped him to further his studies.
