Wally Green: What a way to see the world
He played basketball, football and volleyball when he was a student at Lafayette High School. He wrestled.
“I did it all,” says Wally Green in his own first-person story. “I grew up in the dangerous and violent Marlboro housing projects. I became part of a gang at the age of 13 and owned six guns.”
His gang was Tragedy because his mother and stepfather said that was what followed Wally Green.
Twice he was grazed by bullets, he told the New York Times.
