Biography

There is very little Warren likes to share about his early years and growing up; the majority of which was confirmed through various filings Warren and his agent had to make when applying for the FBA draft. Some reporters have lamented that it was easier to squeeze blood from a stone than to get Warren to open up and speak about his childhood. The little that Warren has talked about, is that he was born in Fall River, Massachusetts on 10/19/89, to a Coyote father and Hyena mother; the rest Warren's Agent, Roland Dimitriou, has provided for the Media and FBA Commission.


As a young pup, Warren was looking for ways to escape a turbulent household and deteriorating relationship with his father; especially after his mother's death and his father's remarriage to another coyote (who already had two children from a previous marriage). Through his school Warren gained an interest in sports, discovered basketball. To help pay for his growing interest in the sport and the FBA, Warren delivered newspapers. Soon he was able to afford a subscription to a couple sports magazines and rent VHS tapes of FBA games or basketball movies.


After enrolling in High School, Warren was quick to try out for the school's basketball team, eager for both the chance to play, and also to get away from home. After getting bounced around a few different positions, Warren's Coach found the young player to be most effective as a Shooting Guard. Quick on his feet, Warren was frequently driving between opponents to get close to the basket for a layup, rebound, make an assist; or shoot the ball from further away. His efforts didn't go unrewarded, helping to advance the team to the final four before losing by three in overtime his freshman year.


While Warren did well on the court, he didn't do as well academically, just about average. After the season wound down following the final four, his grades began to fall, and in more than a couple instances Warren missed school days at a time, coincidentally showing up to school afterwards with bruises not even his fur could fully conceal. Despite this, Warren managed to pass his courses; However his coach and teachers who saw potential in the young hybrid grew more concerned. After making a report into suspected abuse, the city's Child Services department was slow to act, and before a social worker could check on Warren before the start of his sophomore year, they discovered he had been un-enrolled from his school, was currently 'staying with relatives out of state.' With nothing to go on, Child services moved on, shuffling Warren's case to the bottom of the stack Child services had to deal with. Checks by his coach however, turned up nothing, and alarmingly by all indications, Warren was quite simply, gone.


Two years would pass before Warren resurfaced, and another year before his former teachers and coach heard back from him. But by then the now 15 year old young man they once knew had changed dramatically; the happy, social hybrid was now a scarred and despondent husk of his former self. After a brief time in state care, Warren was moved from Massachusetts to live with a foster family in Washington State. Quiet and downhearted, it took some time before Warren was convinced by his new foster family to return to High School; but he couldn't be talked into getting back into basketball.


In a new, stable environment and focusing on his studies, Warren did better academically than he had previously. But the young hybrid struggled socially, the physical and emotional scars still raw, he was most often seen wearing a hoodie and sitting in the back of the classroom. Despite all that had transpired, his favorite sport was never very far from his thoughts, going out late at night to a local outdoor basketball court to shoot hoops and practice. After being set back three years by the 'interruption' in his life, Warren finally graduated High School when he was 18.


Rather than go directly to college, Warren enrolled in the computer technology program at the local community college. The smaller class size helped give Warren the personal attention and assistance he needed, and the computer tech program fit well with his introverted nature. Living in a stable home environment, having supportive instructors and pleasant classmates helped tremendously to improve Warren's self-confidence. While the community college did have a basketball team, Warren opted to shoot hoops or have impromptu games with classmates and friends; helping to get him used to playing on the court with others. Warren finished the two year community college program with an associate's degree, and enrolled to Saola Memorial University in Tacoma.


While taking courses for a degree in computer science, Warren joined the university's basketball team. Despite initially finding himself on the receiving end of some unsavory jokes and undesirable nicknames, playing once again gave Warren focus as he set out to prove he could be a decisive member of the team; Not just to his new coach and teammates, but to himself as well. Warren's coach started him in his familiar position as a guard, but during practices would switch him as a forward, forcing Warren to work harder around larger opponents than he had to deal with back in High School. Soon Warren was learning new ways to out-maneuver his opponents in order to make crucial points when they counted. By his second year at the University, Warren's skills on the basketball court was gaining more attention from outside the University; Some of that attention was also partly due to Warren's facial markings that some folks thought made Warren more of a curiosity than a serious ball player. Scoring 23 points in the championship game his junior year and doing well his senior year would prove them wrong.


An FBA recruiter and a couple scouts had taken notice of Warren's skills as well. One scout noticed that Warren played much more aggressively after getting fouled, and far more likely to cause fouls afterwards. A different scout investigating Warren's background felt he was 'damaged goods' and might not be able to handle the pressure of being a professional player in the FBA. But otherwise Warren played well, doing his best to keep any personal problems he might have off the court and away from prying eyes. While he was getting better at being more social, he was still a very private person, slow to trust others he didn't know well. Being particularly self-conscience of his appearance, Warren doesn't care for close-up photos being taken of him, but saves his disdain for paparazzi and others that would get too close with a camera. After meeting with the FBA recruiter, Warren held off on going all-in for a career in the FBA, instead waiting to finish school and graduate. During that time, Warren played in exhibition games, and practiced. After graduating, Warren was now determined, more so than ever, to join the ranks of the FBA. The real question was, would anyone take a chance on him?
