Born and raised in Great Neck/ Kings Point, Long Island. At the age of 4 Lexington was introduced to Archery by his grandpa who was born a Catawba Indian his grandpa would make the bows and arrows by hand and he taught Lexington how to shoot and hunt so every summer Lexington would visit his grandpa and they would go deep into the woods of King Mountain, N.C they did this up until Lexington's grandpa passed.
Lexington attended a private school not just for the academics his parents wanted for him but because they had archery as an extracurricular activity and as a child he had a deep passion for archery and he wanted to carry on his grandpa's legacy he did this all the way to High School. Lexington was accepted into Lasalle Academy and Fordham Prep but because Lasalle was a boarding school his mother said No and because Fordham Prep was in the Bronx and arriving home every night late after football practice would have been a hassle so he opted for Manhasset High School on Long Island where he was an "All Long Island, All Star" grid iron running back/linebacker. As a running back he broke several of Brown rushing records where he averaged 6 tackles a game and 6.5 yards a carry. He was also a track runner and was invited to the Penn Relays 3 years in a row the 400 relay team Lexington was on broke the school record twice. He was at one point the second fastest runner in New York State in 60m.
Coming up as a child Lexington studied martial arts since the age of 5 and also studied music drum/piano and learned to write music at an early age.
He attended North Carolina A&T State University where he majored Electrical Engineer/Computer Science/Child/Theater Development he played football and got injured as well.
As time went on Lexington moved to Harlem and connected with his Uncle Mr. Fredric Douglas nickname (Pup) the owner of Sweet n Low a women's Boutique shop on 125th and was in business over 20 years he taught Lexington the art of the retail business and how to be successful in the clothing industry...it was Lexington who created the 8 Ball leather jackets and a year later founded Grandma's Iced Tea which was a big hit in the 90's Lexington got a 15 minute segment with Chauncey Howell of the Channel 7 six o'clock news...that was awesome...that boost sales even more. His Uncle Pup called Lexington "Lucky" because he couldn't think of another name for hard worker. Thank you Uncle Pup...I always think about the fun times and all you taught me on how to be a man...R.I.P
After studying and getting pointers from a few American Academy Instructors Lexington decided his hand at acting and he landed his first major role as Junior Pierce on the Television Hit series HBO Oz.
When Lexington's mother passed in 2000...Lexington went into seclusion and worked on reinventing himself with the aspirations of being the world's first African-American Archer shooting as a team member of Team USA Archery and competing for a spot on the 2016 Olympic Team...and with the help and mentoring of Coach Brown the first African American Archery Coach who's been competing and coaching for well over 50 years Lexington is a sure bet to make it...Lexington looks up to Coach Brown as not just a Coach but as his mentor. As you can see Lexington is a hard worker and he loves achievement...one of Lexington's quotes..."Fear is in the eyes of those that are before me."
Coach Brown was the Archery Head Coach at Columbia University and decided he wanted to introduce Archery to the inner city youths of New York and already a few of his kids have won National Tournaments...Coach Brown and Lexington are both a team to reckon with as they both take on the challenge to introducing Archery to the Black/Latino communities.
Not all was red roses for Lexington coming up as a youth he faced many battles/challenges Lexington's mom worked hard at cleaning people's houses and stores and there was a time when his Mom got kicked out on the streets while Lexington was in the hospital for over 6 months and died and was bought back to life...yes there was many hardships in Lexington's life but the battle continues and he is running a good race.
