Former Texas A&M All-American linebacker Antonio Armstrong and his wife, Dawn, were shot and killed early Friday in their Houston home.
Former linebacker and his wife were shot and killed by their teenage son in their home in Houston on Friday, police say. Police say a 16-year-old boy has been charged as a juvenile with murder in the slayings. The suspect’s identity is being withheld because of his age.
This is the world we are living in when your child shoots and kills you? What could his parents have done to him that would make him shoot and kill them? There is always three sides to a story and we have no idea the dynamics of their relationship. It’s sad that he thought killing his parents would be the answer and at age 16, his entire life is ruined.
Police were called to the Armstrong’s home around 1:30 a.m. in response to shots fired, the Houston Chronicle reports. Daun Armstrong died at the scene and Antonio Armstrong died in the hospital a few hours later. The couple’s two other children were at home at the time but were not harmed. I’m wondering if the other two children were apart of it, what were they doing when they heard the shots?
Relatives described the Armstrongs as a loving family and say they can’t imagine what could have led to such a situation.
“They kept them busy and they supported them in everything that they did. There was not any mark that they missed with their children,” a cousin of Daun Armstrong told the Houston Chronicle. “There was nothing that even could possibly have justified this situation. This doesn’t even make sense.”
Antonio Armstrong was selected in the sixth round of the 1995 NFL draft by the San Franciso 49ers. An ankle fracture in training camp led to his release that October. He then signed with the Miami Dolphins and played in four games that season, logging four solo tackles.
The NFL’er also played three seasons in the CFL. The Armstrongs owned and operated a small chain of fitness centers in the Houston area.
In retirement he has worked as a personal trainer and was well known in his community as a volunteer youth coach. Antonio Armstrong was a letter man who played for the Aggies from 1991 to ’94, and in a statement Friday, Texas A&M described him as a cornerstone of the “Wrecking Crew” defense. He was named a semifinalist for the Butkus Award as a senior after leading the Southwestern Conference in quarterback sacks and tackles for loss, and was named a first-team Associated Press All-America linebacker in 1994.
Rest in peace Antonio and Daun Armstrong. Their lives cut short because their son shot them, I’m praying for the family and I really hope the powers that be can really find out why their 16 year old son shot his parents. This generation believes they don’t have to work and they are entitled to what you have worked for. This generation is our future, we in trouble!!
Colin Kaepernick Graces The Cover Of GQ Magazine
Former NFL athlete Colin Kaepernick graces the cover of GQ Magazine and he looks good as HELL!! His Afro is everything, it makes him stand out and its important that he continues to follow his path, if you stand for nothing, you will fall for anything.
The former NFL player has a lot of support from his fans and even from quite a few celebrities. Ava Duvernay, who wrote the book “Queen Sugar,” which also a drama series on the network OWN produced by her, she was quoted by saying, “I’m just really honored to know him. He’s sitting there and I’m sitting there and I’m like, “Look at this brother—he’s doing better than any of us would’ve done.” A lot better. With a lot more elegance.”
Rapper J. Cole is always one to speak his mind and stand for issues, he is also quoted by saying, “And he wasn’t backing down. And he wasn’t afraid. He was just being honest. And it didn’t seem like he was looking for attention. It caught me off guard because, you know, nothing personally against him, I just didn’t know when I met him that the person with the biggest balls in sports would be him.”
And lets not forget the former baller’s beautiful girlfriend, Nessa who is a host and radio personality, she is quoted by saying, “I’m very fortunate that I have Colin next to me. It’s everything. We love each other, we care for each other, and we have to remind each other that, hey, we’re doing our part, we’re trying to make a difference.
I’m not much of a football fan but Colin Kaepernick is really making a difference, he won’t be silenced and the NFL needs to wake up, he has no plans of stopping his fight and with all of the people backing him up, the NFL may be in trouble. Wake up and the smell the coffee, its already burning. I respect him as a man, not just a black or white man, just a man who will not be silenced.
This what the baller posted on his Instagram: “Kaepernick@will not be silenced”
NFL’S Antonio Cromartie’s Reality Show
NFL Antonio Cromartie is currently a free agent, he has played for 11 years and now he’s on a break waiting to see if he would get picked up. In the meantime, the professional baller has 14 kids and 1 on the way with his current wife Terricka. Did ya’ll hear me? 14 damn kids, that’s a whole lotta kids, can he even take care of 14 kids and a wife?
I guess he can afford 14 kids and a wife, his net worth is 12.5 million dollars, talk about making coins, oh he’s good. He allowed the cameras in his home because he wanted to show the world that he isn’t just a professional athlete but he’s a husband and a father as well. He wants us to believe that his family is normal, but with 14 kids, how normal could that be?
“We’re just a large family that has a lot of fun with each other. We’re a very loving family,” Terricka tells PEOPLE. “Although my husband played in the NFL for such a long time, he’s a very present dad. We just want the world to be able to see him in his prime, doing daddy duties and having fun with his kids.”
Antonio’s wife Terricka is pregnant and ready to pop, they are excited about this sixth child, they are having too many kids and they already have their hands full with five bad a$$ kids they have now, including a twin toddlers. These kids would drive me to drank, especially that Jagger, he is just too extra.
Behind every successful man is a smart woman, with all of the kids they have as a blended family, wife Terricka put her thinking cap on and came up with the idea for the show, but Antonio, was a little apprehensive about allowing the world and the cameras into his home and his personal space. But, something or someone obviously changed his mind because they now have a reality show.
“I was hesitant just for the simple fact of bringing the kids on TV — exposing our family,” say Antonio. This is something my wife explained to me that she wanted, to show our family dynamic and how relatable we are. Once she explained it to me I was fully on board and it’s been a great experience.”
“The kids love it! Everything went as planned and went smoothly as possible. They had really big personalities to begin with. But now it’s a matter of them trying to outdo each other … I think it’s kinds just built their personalities up,” Terricka says.
“It was just a great experience for them and I think the world will be surprised by just how big of a personality they all have but also how different they are.”
The family actually filmed over the summer for eight weeks, and with Antonio on a break from football, he really learned how to be a hands on father which was difficult for him at first but he got it together. It wasn’t easy but he did the best he could with his children while his wife was expecting their 6th child together, so that means he has 8 other children out there? Damn, his wife is a good one, 14 kids is way too many kids for any woman to handle.
