Xavier Silas: “I think a lot of people just think it was easy for us because of our dads. There was always a target on my back. There were people who thought things were handed to me, and I hated that. It made me work harder. My dad ran a city league when I was growing up. When I was about 6 or 7 years old, I remember this older player who was probably like 21 or so. I heard him say about me, ‘I bet he’s one of those kids who does art or something.’ That stuck with me, and made me aware that people were already judging me when I was just a kid.”
