Dwayne Avila Cummings Basketball Court

On Friday, September 18, 2020, Dwayne’s family members, Deputy Mayor, Ian Cal, and members of the Orange Walk Town Council joined the Orange Walk Running Rebels to commemorate the basketball court in Dwayne’s honor and mark the completion of the rehabilitation project. This signifies that the basketball court at the Polo Briceño Park in the San Lorenzo Housing Site will now be recognized as the “Dwayne Avila Cummings Basketball Court”.

The Rebel’s spearheaded initiative included power washing, repairs, marking and repainting of the court. Repairs and painting of the uprights, with the installation of new backboards and basketball rims. The installation of a pair of 15’ bleachers with capacity to seat up to 150 person and landfill surrounding the court.

The Orange Walk Running Rebels wishes to recognize the support and commitment of the Mayor, Kevin Bernard, Councilors and the Orange Walk Town Council throughout this project. We also express our deepest gratitude to our partners: ASR - BSI, Ross Brothers Co. Ltd, Sara Cabañas, De’Mar’s Co. and the National Sports Council of Belize. In addition, we recognize the efforts of the management of the Orange Walk Running Rebels, Mr. Raul Rosado, volunteers Gymael Cal and Rasheed Reneau, and others who contributed to making the project become a reality.

In February of 2019, Dwayne Cummings’ life was taken away, a loss that devastated the entire community and a case that today still remains unanswered. Dwayne is deeply missed but his life continues to be remembered and now remains enshrined in our community.

#Justice_for_Dwayne

Yesterday Deputy Mayor Ian Cal, Councilor Haresh and Ms Pascascio joined the Cummings family in the inauguration of the newly rehabilitate basketball court now named Dwayne Avila Cummings Basket ball court. This was done in his memory since this was the place this young man use to spend his days with many other sports lovers. The Park at the San Lorenzo Housing Site benefits all the children in that community even those who come to visit. We thank the Sports Council, Running Rebels and all those who contributed in making this project come to reality.

🕊🕊A SPECIAL DEDICATION TO DWAYNE CUMMINGS🕊🕊 GONE TOO SOON🕊🕊🏀🏀#10🏀🏀

I WAS 20 YEARS OLD
A SON, A BROTHER, UNCLE, COUSIN AND FRIEND
A JOVIAL, HUMBLE,SHY, SOFT SPOKEN YOUNG MAN
FILLED WITH MANY DREAMS AND ASPIRATIONS BUT SADLY MY KILLER TOOK THAT ALL AWAY FROM ME..

I WAS AMBITIOUS I WAS 20 YEARS OLD AND ALREADY THINKING ABOUT BUYING A CAR AND BUILDING A HOUSE
I WORKED AT SPORT COUNCIL, AND WAS PURSUING AN ASSOCIATES DEGREE IN BUSINESS AT THE UNIVERSITY OF BELIZE
I WAS ALSO A RISING STAR FOR ORANGE WALK RUNNING REBELS
MY FUTURE WAS BRIGHT BUT A GUNMAN TOOK EVERYTHING AWAY

FEBRUARY 10, 2019 I ATTENDED A GAME BETWEEN RUNNING REBELS AND DREAM BALLERS
I WAS KINDA MAD CAUSE I DIDN'T GET TO PLAY AND WE LOST THE GAME
I LEFT THE AUDITORIUM ABOUT 11:15 PM AND DECIDED TO WALK HOME
JUST TO COOL OFF AND THINK ABOUT HOW I COULD IMPROVE MY SKILLS
BASKETBALL WAS MY PASSION
BUT I NEVER REACHED HOME
DEATH AWAITED ME ON SAN MARTIN ST.
JUST A FEW BLOCKS AWAY FROM HOME

ONE GUNSHOT TO THE LEFT SIDE OF MY HEAD
I WAS EXECUTED FOR NO REASON
THEY DID NOT EVEN ROB ME
ALL MY PERSONAL BELONGS WERE FOUND ALONG WITH MY BODY
WHY MR. KILLER DID YOU DO THIS??

WHAT COULD I HAVE EVER DONE TO YOU
ALL I DID WAS WORK GO TO SCHOOL PLAY BALL AND MIND MY OWN BUSINESS
I WAS SO FOCUSED ON BEING GREAT
YOU TOOK THAT ALL FROM ME WITH YOUR BULLETT
DID YOU THINK ABOUT MY MOTHER, FATHER, AND SIBILINGS BEFORE YOU DID THIS

YOU BROKE OUR FAMILY CHAIN
NOTHING WILL EVER BE THE SAME AGAIN
YOU CAUSE A RIPPLE EFFECT WITH YOUR BULLETT
YOU HURT MY TEAM MATES, THE WHOLE NEBL,
THE WHOLE NATION TOOK A LOSS
I HAD SO MUCH TO OFFER MY COUNTRY
IF YOU HAD JUST LET ME BE
I COULD HAVE BEEN A SUCESSFUL BLACK MAN
AND GIVE SO MUCH BACK TO THE YOUTHS
BUT NOW AM JUST A MEMORY TO MY FAMILY AND FRIENDS
ALL I CAN DO IS LOOK DOWN AND GUIDE THEM
WHILE I SHOOT HOOPS UP HERE IN HEAVEN

🕊REST IN PERFECT PEACE DWAYNE AVILA CUMMINGS🕊🕊GONE WAY TOO SOON🕊🏀🏀#10🏀🏀

#Dream_Chaser

Orange Walk's very own Mark L. Bainton Jr. has won the MVP award in the U-13 Division in a recent basketball tournament held at the Belize City Center.

Present for this tournament, which was hosted by the Ahmadiyya Basketball League, was Belizean Basketball Legend Clinton Pulu Lightburn

NOTE: Young Mark Bainton is the son of Mark 'Quickie' Bainton, one of the best B-Baller I saw playing during the semi-pro era. He is also the youngest brother of Dwayne #DC10 Cummings who was murdered last year in Orange Walk.

Play Big Melanie

U-23 Standout Melanie Palacio receives Scholarship Offer!!!

BK Volleyball Foundation would like to publicly congratulate Ms Melanie Palacio on signing her letter of intent to head to Canada to pursue her Bachelors Degree and play volleyball for ACAC Champion, The King's University of Edmonton! Melanie has burst on to the scene as a teenage standout, standing tall at an impressive 6'1" and jumping out of the gym. Her work ethic has complimented her natural tools, as she has certainly made the most of her gifts thus far!

She will be looking to join Bryton Codd, Karym Coleman, Francis Hauze, Daril Avila and Mya Musa in the ACAC this coming year... brightening the prospects of Belize’s Senior National Team program in the future.

We wish you well on your journey Melanie and look forward to following your growth and success in Canada 🇨🇦🇧🇿 #501Excellence #AnotherOne 🔥🔥🔥🔥

Dwayne Cummings

Orange Walk's very own Running Rebel...gone but never forgotten

Humble as a Lamb...even a bit shy in the spotlight...yet he shone brighter than the lights that constantly surrounded him

His skills transcended various disciplines but it was on the basketball court that he showed us what he was truly capable of. He dribble was lightning fast but his smile was even faster...and he never failed to acknowledge those who supported and admired him, including his biggest fan...his mother.

This young man embodied everything we as parents would hope for in our children. Intelligence, ambition, humility, respect for his elders are but only some of the characteristics that describe this son of the Orange Walk soil. His death has shocked the nation and left the OW community numb with pain and disbelief.

On behalf of all members of Charitable Roots Foundation, of whom Dwayne's mother Delcia DC Cummings is a founding member, we hereby offer our heartfelt condolences to the extended Cummings family and friends in this terrible time of bereavement and we pray that the almighty creator keeps them strong and ushers them through these dark days.

To Dwayne we say...Play Big in heaven youthman...you certainly did while here on earth.

The Man Who’s Trying to Convince Some of America’s Best Soccer Players to Represent Mexico

"One summer, he [Van der Most] traded California for the Caribbean and went to play for a club in Belize, the San Pedro Dolphins. He lived in a hut on La Isla Bonita, the island immortalized in a Madonna song. The setting was beautiful, but the soccer was brutal thanks to the tropical heat, physical play, and surreal travel conditions. “We’d get to the mainland from the boat, and then there’s those old yellow buses, the American school buses, that would take our team through the jungle,” he says. “And we’d get to a little town, and literally there was [someone] waiting for us on the field, cursing us with a cigar, reading from the Bible.” THERINGER.COM

Aside from the obvious reference to a Belizean football icon 'Stamma' during the Juventus FC era in the semi-pro league, this article gives us a look at the inner machinations of the recruitment process at the highest levels of Mexican and American football, starting from the early stages of youth competition. Our football authorities in Belize would do well to take a page out of the Mexican playbook for some insight into how to recruit Belizean nationals for national team participation.
