I, Kenny R. Hampton, born “8-28-83”, grew up in Detroit, MI with a passion for sports and dreams of becoming a professional athlete that began at age 4.
As an all-star left-handed pitcher for Detroit Communication and Media Arts High School, I was named Rookie of the Year, MVP (twice),
and garnered All-District honors as a senior.
My collegiate baseball career started in 2001 with an athletic scholarship to Kentucky State University. After becoming an MLB prospect (1B/CF),
injury forced a switch to football.
Despite never having played the sport at any level, I was determined to make an immediate impact, relying on faith and hard work to quickly move from the bottom of the depth chart to starting wide receiver. In my final season at KSU (Coach Fred T. Farrier), I led the Thorobreds in receiving yards per game and helped my team to a 7-4 record.
More importantly, I earned a Bachelor of Science degree in Computer Science.
