In June, Armstrong turned 17 years old and he was on the path to graduate in 2021. His family says he went on a tour of historically Black colleges and universities and dreamed of a bright future Armstrong played football, basketball and ran track. His dad says his son was his best friend.
“The best memory I got is watching him play football, knowing I’m not going to see him play football again is the most hurtful thing,” he said.
Dozens of students turned out to South High School with flowers and balloons in hand to pay tribute to Armstrong. His friends cried and laughed as they shared memories of Armstrong.
