Vick’s HS Jersey starts controversy
Michael Vick’s HS jersey was hanging in the raftors of Warwick HS, in Newport News, VA until his conviction in 2007. Since his comeback and change in character, students have made a conserted effort (rallying in hundreds) to get his jersey re-hung. The school keeps denieing the application because “they don’t want it to become a distraction”. The jersey would probably be a target for theft and vandalism for his crimes and high noteriety. There is also a Facebook campaign for and against the cause. Make a vote! There is still a possibility that the jersey will be hung there again.
