Trevon Fareed Richardson

Age 18

Decatur, Georgia

College, football, a scholarship. All lost.

A football standout, he wore the number 11 on Fridays. And the crowd roared.

He was Cedar Grove High School’s star athlete, also playing basketball and running track and field. A full scholarship as a wide receiver for Valdosta State University was just two months away.

Trevon Fareed Richardson, 18, was shot and killed outside of a DeKalb County apartment complex on May 28, 2018. The candles they made for him read, “Long live Trey.” During a two-week period in the metro Atlanta area, he was one of five teenagers 18 or younger who died, all at the end of a gun.
