Arthell gave his life to Christ at an early age and joined New Mount Pleasant Baptist Church. Arthell had an avid love for all sports, but was by far a football jock. He participated in basketball, football and track and field while attending Worth County High School. He then went on to play for the Valdosta State University blazers Football team. He played Defensive Back, and won a few GSC Championships. Those that knew him well dared not to speak against the Florida State Seminoles and the New England Patriots. MJ, Kobe and if Lebrina was the man!
