Kenny Britt’s dad, Jack Britt is concerned about his soon when he is not playing football according to Conor Orr and Matthew Stanmyre of the Newark Star-Ledger.
“I’m worried about him all the time,” Jack Britt said. “But my concern is not with Kenny, per se, it’s more with Kenny’s friends, and he knows that. He has too many friends with too much free time.
“He needs to be around more positive people.”
One of Britt’s good friends is Albert Robinson of Jersey City. Previously convicted of a felony weapons charge, Robinson is accused of shooting a teenager and throwing him into the Hudson River, where the teen drowned.
“Kenny is a sweetheart. He’s a sweetheart who happens to have a lot of money now,” said Thomas Ferriero, the offensive coordinator at Bayonne High when Britt starred on the team. “People gravitate toward Kenny still because of who he is. They know he’s got money. He’s got all the things they’ve never experienced themselves.”
The problems have “nothing to do with Kenny,” Ferriero said. “It’s the people that he’s associated with. They were his friends in high school, and he’s never given up on them since.
But the friends that he’s with, their life didn’t work out according to plan and Kenny hasn’t disassociated himself with them. That’s the problem.
“Kenny really didn’t have much and people around him don’t have much. And now they have Kenny.”
After his spring break, Jack Britt said Kenny will return home to Nashville with one of his brothers in tow. Maybe that will help.
