At the annual Juneteenth celebration, Lane explained why he does what he does for the community.
"I deal with the youth a lot and the youth is our future," Lane said. "My son is here, my cousins and my friends and it is important for me to show them the new look," Lane said. "i just turned 30 years old. I went to college and played professional sports and now I am moving into another area of my life. With my leadership role and the people I surround myself with, they thought it was important I come in and help."
