Allen  Iverson

Allen Iverson

Speaker

Allen Iverson was born on June 7, 1975, in Hampton, Virginia. His athleticism was realized at a very early age, and it was football that he thought would be his ticket out. Little did he know that basketball would be what he became known for around the world.

He attended Bethel High School and established himself as the Bethel Bruins best all-around athlete, and was honored as the top quarterback in the state of Virginia after his sophomore year. Basketball, though still his second favorite sport, opened other options.

At just under six feet, he became one of the most recruited athletes in the country for both football and basketball. After high school, Iverson attended Georgetown University and was the first athlete to leave the Hoyas for the NBA, after only his sophomore year. During his time there he set the record for career scoring average (22.9 points per game) and was named the Big East Defensive Player of the Year both seasons.

 Iverson was selected by the Philadelphia 76ers as the number one overall pick in the 1996 NBA Draft. He is an eleven-time All-Star, two-time All-Star MVP and League MVP. Additionally, he represented the United States in the 2004 Summer Olympics, winning the bronze medal.

He changed the game with his signature moves, as well as his  controversial look on the court. Adorned with his shooting sleeve, cornrows, tattoos, and lethal crossover, Iverson achieved something far greater than expected from his slight frame. He's the proud father of five: Tiaura; Allen II (Deuce), Isaiah Rahsaan, Messiah Lauren, and Dream Alijha.
