For the first time since the deadly shooting of youth football coach Mike Hickmon, we hear directly from the witnesses on the field during the tragedy. Dragon Elite Academy Coaches Kerry Lewis, Mark West, and Heith Mayes share the details of what began as an argument with game officials that turned deadly. They believe the tragedy was completely preventable, and the blame for sparking the events that led to the shooting lies solely on one man: former NFL star Aqib Talib. “Aqib incited the whole uproar,” Dragon Elite coach Kerry Lewis tells Jason. “The game would’ve never been stopped had Aqib not come over to our sideline to yell at the refs.” "Fearless" is the only place where you will hear the story of how a Pee Wee game turned violent and left Aqib’s brother Yakub Talib in jail on murder charges. This tragedy highlights two issues: the epidemic of black-on-black crime and the proliferation of adult misconduct in youth sports. "Fearless" contributors T.J. Moe and Steve Kim join the show to discuss the newest details in the case.
