“Grit and toughness is all you really need to survive in the streets.” These were the words he stood by growing up in the streets East Peralta. The young Kangaroo really didn’t have a lot of folks he would consider a family. His father died when he was three as a police officer during an armed robbery. His mother, with no way of finding any income other than prostitution, lost him in the child protective service when he was eight. During the two years he stayed in the orphanage, he was very accustomed to getting himself into trouble with the other kids. He was in many fights against those he thought was acting all high and mighty picking on furs who couldn’t defend themselves. After taking on another child, he was noticed by a middle-aged pit-bull named Jermaine Charleston, most known as “Uncle Cage”. Uncle Cage saw a lot of heart in the Roo and decided to adopt him. Even with the shaky start in their new relationship, it was a step in the right direction of living a better life as Uncle Cage became a role model for him.
Start for basketball
Dennis was a bit of a late bloomer when it came to his interest of playing basketball. It didn’t begin to spark until his freshman year of high school where he was tasked to play a pick-up game for P.E. It was then he learned to really enjoy the game and decided to tryout for the team that year. He was able to make the team after a successful tryout due to his already impressive athleticism. He wasn’t in the starting lineup until his junior year and he was able to become their star point guard for his school with his aggressive command on the floor and his fantastic vision. His leadership and vision easily caught the eyes of many scouts. With the ball in his hand, he saw it as a way to get out of his disgruntled past and finally make something of himself. He wanted to be able to reset his life and be able to have a new path in front of him and cut ties with the rough streets in Oakland. After graduating high school, he decided to take his talents to Los Angeles and play for a very well-known basketball program in the UFLA.
Single Season in UFLA
The Roo didn’t stop from continuing to amaze as he was able to come in UFLA and show the world his remarkable skill as a distributor of the ball and an impactful leader. He was even able to help lead UFLA to another winning record and to their conference semi-final game. However, his efforts weren’t able to bring the school over the hump as they failed to beat their most heated rivals in the UFSC. Even though he would’ve wanted to do more, he knew that there wasn’t much left for him in the UFLA. So he decided to enter his name into the 2018 FBA draft in order to continue making a better life for himself.
