Frederick Leatherman on Kenneth Johnson’s interview with DailyMail recently about the fight between Kendrick and another larger, senior football player who was bullying him following a lost game.

Since the student was older, a champ wrestler and football player, it is alleged, and presumed at this point, that an ongoing resentment over the humiliating beating led to Kendrick’s death over a year later.
