Trey Allen, junior

What’s your opinion on kneeling during the anthem?: “When it was time to kneel, no one wanted to take advantage of the opportunity even after Colin Kaepernick did it.

Are you doing it because of the injustice towards colored people or because Trump called you out?”

What are some must do’s in Commerce?: “If you live in Commerce, you have to go to Omega’s. Best restaurant in town!”
