Aaron is the son of Aaron and Angelia Richmond. He has a younger brother Arius (12). 

Aaron started playing sports at a young age. When he was five, he played in soccer which helped to create his love of “juke moves”. Aaron started playing football when he was nine years old on a junior football league as a running back. During his junior league football career, his junior varsity team won back-to-back championships. When he attended junior high school, his football coaches changed his position to quarterback. Aaron continued playing quarterback in the ninth and tenth grades and because of his athleticism his coaches decided to play him on both sides of the ball. In his senior year, Aaron played five different positions and helped lead his football team to a district final which hadn’t happened in over ten years for Willow Run. 

Aaron also participated in basketball all four years of high school and was the team captain his senior year. 

Aaron thanked “God for blessing him with his athletic abilities.” He thanked his parents for “always being very supportive and keeping me focused on the right track.” He also thanked his football team, coaching staff, and school staff for “pushing me to my full potential athletically and academically.”
