THE father of a 19-year-old has revealed his son's final words before his death, which has a chilling link to the George Floyd case.

Family of Anton Black, the teen who died after being chased and held down by white police officers in Maryland for over six minutes in 2018, is speaking out again.

NBC Dateline is set to air a special this Friday with host Lester Holt that covers a year-long investigation into everything that has happened since Black's death, including interviews with parents Antone and Jenell.

Antone said that he saw his son "begging for his life" and screaming for his mother as police officer Thomas Webster IV and off-duty officers Gary Manos and Dennis Lannon held the teen down on September 15, 2018.

"My son was George Floyd before George Floyd," Antone told NBC Dateline.

Floyd died about two years after Anton in a strikingly similar incident, as he was held down by a white police officer until he became unconscious and unresponsive.

It was revealed by police body cameras during each incident that Floyd and Black were both heard screaming for their lives, and specifically their mothers.

The news of Black's death in 2018 and the manner that it happened shocked the Maryland community and even divided it, according to the Black family's friend Christina Robinson.

Only two years later, Floyd's death would virtually divide the nation.

Officer Derek Chauvin was subsequently charged with murder in the death of Floyd, but there were no charges given to Webster, Lannon, and Manos in Black's case, per NPR.

The Black family filed a lawsuit in 2020 claiming that officers Webster, Lannon, and Manos used excessive force, The Baltimore Sun reported.

The three cops countered by filing a motion to have the lawsuit dismissed.

However, in January of 2022, US District Judge Catherine Blake refused to toss the Black family's lawsuit.

The episode will be available for streaming on Peacock starting on Saturday.

Wheelchair football tournament held at College of Lake County; athletes played their hearts out

More than 100 wheelchair football athletes from around the United States competed in the Great Lakes Adaptive Sports Association’s home tournament Aug. 13 and 14 at the College of Lake County in Grayslake.

Wheelchair football athletes strive to pursue “pushing what’s possible for people with disabilities and showing that football is for everyone,” said Karalyn Stott, senior program manager with Move United, a nonprofit and a partner of the U.S. Olympic & Paralympic Committee.

“These guys have been competing their hearts out this weekend.”

The GLASA Chicago Bears team hosted its first USA Wheelchair Football League home tournament and came in fourth place of seven teams. The Green Bay Packers team took the first place champion trophy.

This was the second year of USA Wheelchair Football League tournament play.

GLASA is a nonprofit organization based in Lake Forest that provides more than 20 adaptive and paralympic sports year-round, including the GLASA Chicago Bears competitive team and recreational wheelchair football.

The USA Wheelchair Football League is a program of Move United made possible by support from the National Football League (NFL) and Bob Woodruff Foundation (BWF) partnership.

The tournament competition kicked off on Saturday morning with two fields of play running concurrently through the day in reconfigured parking lots. On Sunday, the weather was overcast and 67 degrees for the 2 p.m. championship games.

“Just to showcase the athletes, just to showcase the sport of wheelchair football, it’s amazing,” said Cindy Housner of Wadsworth, GLASA executive director and founder.

“We’ve had fans come out from all over the Midwest, actually, the country, and it’s a great opportunity to really grow the sport of wheelchair football.”

Chicago Bears alumnus Kaseem Sinceno of Chicago’s Logan Square neighborhood served as honorary coach for the GLASA Chicago Bears during Sunday’s game.

“Being an NFL athlete, I see guys that are injured and have different things happen all the time,” Sinceno said. “So when you have a permanent injury like this, it’s important to come out, just support the guys and let them know that we’re with them.

“They’ve got big hearts, they still love the game,” Sinceno said. “They’re still willing to do whatever it takes to get on the field, even if it’s in a wheelchair.”

The GLASA Chicago Bears wheelchair football team coach is Jason Sfire of North Barrington, GLASA board president.

Being associated with the Chicago Bears “is a lifelong dream,” said Sfire, who played varsity football, tennis and wrestling at Lake Zurich High School and graduated in 1992.

Brian Pezze of Streamwood, a newcomer GLASA Chicago Bears wheelchair team player, served in the United States Marine Corps in the late 2000s.

“It’s fun, it’s exciting,” Pezze said about being on the team.

Gustavo Silva of Crystal Lake, manager of youth football and community programs for the Chicago Bears, said the Bears have had a relationship with GLASA for many years.

“So last year, when we heard that GLASA was going to be one of the inaugural teams to have a wheelchair football team, and they wanted to be called the Chicago Bears, we were excited to partner with them. We were able to gain them the rights to be called the Chicago Bears. We were just excited and they were just happy for the relationship.”

He explained that GLASA has the same kind of goals the Bears have.

“Our goals are to grow the game of football by making it more inclusive, by making it accessible and by making it equitable. And that’s exactly what wheelchair football is,” Silva added.

Sfire acknowledged the Chicago Bears.

“Incredible huge thank you (to the Bears),” Sfire said. “They just think of us as an extension of them and that’s an honor.”
