Four words do not make a man racially identifiable. His musical tastes and skin tone are not clear indicators either. When it comes to Dakota Prescott, we already know this is the case.
“After the officers realized it was Larry Johnson, they approached and told him it wasn’t wise for him to be there, and that the area was full of trouble. Larry then pointed in the direction across the street and told the policemen, ‘This is where I spent most of my life. This is home. I don’t forget home.’
I’m just trying to make sure Dallas returns the favor.”
Kam Willard continues the story of Larry Johnson, a true Hometown Hero whose story took him from South Dallas, to Skyline, and from Skyline to Stardom.
Today a celebration is due for a legend that our city will never be able to replicate. A hero that deserves his roses now, versus being cherished when his achievements are relegated to a never ending list on the ESPN ticker preceded by “Former NBA Superstar dies at age . . .”
Kam Willard won’t allow that.
This series and the projects that pair with it are more than just a hobby and a story to share. This is history that we are engaging in. Kam Willard is taking the steps to learn more about the roots of prominent figures and their attachment to the city of Dallas, continuing the stories of our legends so we don’t let them age away into the chambers of yesterday.
Our newest contributor KamWillard gets his #HometownHeroes series kicked off by highlighting DFW native and Heisman Trophy winner Kyler Murray. The series pays homage to athletes from the metroplex with a unique look through the lenses of sports, fashion and culture.

He’s got to go, fam. Fuck the NFL as a record label, a staff, and as a motherfucking crew.
We saw the heroics of Marcus Smart and Avery Bradley, but where was Bron?!
