Wimes, a close friend of Starks’ father, said he had known Starks since he was about 5 years old. But he was older before he decided to give football a try.
“It was just so natural to him,” Wimes said.
College: Starks played defensive back at Appalachian State before he later transferred to Savannah State. He was a junior at the time of his death.
Music: Starks was an aspiring rapper who performed under the stage name "Booley Boo." An Atlanta audio engineer posted on Twitter that he had recently recorded Starks at his studio. Booley Boo's first video is scheduled to be released in September, according to social media posts.
Family: Starks is survived by his parents and a younger brother, a freshman football player at Miller Grove.
