An excerpt from the book:
On March 30, 1988, Richard Sherman was born in Compton, California, a city that rests in the southern part of Los Angeles County that is very well known for having a lot of gang activity. It was a rough area to live in throughout the 1990s and even the early 2000s. Sherman was born to Kevin and Beverly Sherman and had an older brother named Branton. He also had a sister, Krystina, who was three years younger. Sherman’s father Kevin was worked hard every day as a garbage truck driver, and continues to today, even after Sherman received his big contract a few years ago. Kevin Sherman was able to teach by example to both Richard and his older brother Branton, reminding them that no matter what you do in life, the most important thing is to take care of your family. Despite losing his right eye in a go-kart explosion at age 14, Kevin Sherman was always going to work, waking up at around 3:45 A.M. every day to get his job done. Even during the holidays, you could expect to find Mr. Sherman working to earn a bigger paycheck. This has been his career for almost 30 years. Before his current career, Kevin Sherman had professional experience in fast-food restaurants and at a flower shop.
His father was also considered a good athlete before the right eye was lost, standing out at Crenshaw High School in Los Angeles, California. However, he would find himself spending much of his time as a young adult around gang members. It would lead to him being shot twice in the chest with both bullets just barely missing his heart. That incident resulted in a change for the better, and Kevin Sherman would make sure he provided his future family with a better life than what he had. Sherman noted in a Los Angeles Times article back in 2014 that he considered his father a remarkable role model for facing the adversity of living with only one eye. “When I was young, I tried to drive with one eye closed just to see how hard it was,” Sherman told the L.A. Times. “I can’t imagine going through that.”
