WP:LEAD:  Done

WP:LAYOUT:  Done

  • Fix Headings and sections (MOS:BODY).
    • Use a different heading for section Early life. This section hardly has anything before 2011 so the early is not appropriate.
    • Very short or very long sections and subsections in an article look cluttered and inhibit the flow of the prose. I recommend breaking up text in the Early life section and organizing content into separate sections.
  • Fix section Personal (MOS:PARAGRAPHS). The number of single-sentence paragraphs should be minimized. Short paragraphs and single sentences generally do not warrant their own subheading. Either this section should be merged into the previous section, or else more information on the personal life should be added.
    • Now, it is at the beginning of the High school section. I believe it should be reverted back to the early life name with this change.--TonyTheTiger (T / C / WP:FOUR / WP:CHICAGO / WP:WAWARD) 06:51, 4 January 2014 (UTC)
      • It's your call. But really, I believe the article looks clear and good now. --Seabuckthorn  12:36, 4 January 2014 (UTC)

WP:EMBED: Not done

  • Embedded lists should be used only when appropriate; sometimes the information in a list is better presented as prose paragraphs. Tables are a complex form of list. (MOS:TABLES). I recommend removing the table as most of the information is already covered in the lead and infobox.
    • This table is a standard element of an article for a football or basketball bio. I probably have included them in 50 prior WP:GAs.--TonyTheTiger (T / C / WP:FOUR / WP:CHICAGO / WP:WAWARD) 06:52, 4 January 2014 (UTC)
      • OK. For the sake of closure, I'm marking it as 'not done'. --Seabuckthorn  12:36, 4 January 2014 (UTC)

I'm putting the article on hold. All the best! --Seabuckthorn  10:07, 3 January 2014 (UTC)

OK, everything looks good now. Passing the article to GA status. --Seabuckthorn  12:36, 4 January 2014 (UTC)
