Donte attended Tukwila Elementary, Chinook Middle School and Tyee High School. Donte enjoyed playing basketball with family and friends yet football was his first passion in sports. Donte was great at any hobby he tried and was quick to challenge others within their own athletic abilities in all sports. He thoroughly enjoyed playing pool as well as weightlifting. Donte was very adventurous and loved to travel and explore the world. He took on a love and passion for dogs and was always thinking outside of the box of normal.
