Hi Hater: Michael Vick’s Old High School Still Won’t Put His Jersey Back In Their Hall Of Fame

Michael Vick

Mike Vick may have had the best comeback season ever, but his high school in Virginia is still not ready applaud him again.

According to TMZ, even a petition from current students isn’t getting Vick back in Warwick High School’s hall of fame.

Michael Vick’s former high school has REFUSED to re-hang the NFL star’s framed prep football jersey in their hallway … despite a spirited student-initiated campaign … TMZ has learned.

Vick’s Jersey had been on display in the hallway at Warwick High in Newport News, VA until 2007 … when he was busted for that whole dogfighting ring. However, after Vick’s incredible NFL comeback this past season, hundreds of students rallied to get administrators to forgive Vick and re-hang his old #7.

But school officials have made their decision — telling TMZ the jersey will NOT be returned on display for the remainder of the year.

Officials tell us they believe the jersey would be a “distraction to the student’s education” … plus, faculty members are concerned the jersey could be vandalized or stolen.

Ok, sure.

Do you think Big Ben McRapey‘s old school has those same concerns?

      My friends told me about — AffluentS ingle* C0- M —–told It’s the be’st pl’ace to me’et Milli’onaire si’ngles. It is the first and best club for wealthy people and their admirers. D’ating CEOs, professional athletes, doctors, lawyers, entrepreneurs, professional models and cheerleaders, and even Hollywood celebrities is an easy experience there…you don’t have to be rich ,but you can meet one there. ;)
      nice experience——-
      whoops, should read “Mike Vick HASN’T backed away from any tough questions”

  • huh

    First off-I think seeing how mike Vick has backed away from any interview and any tough questions shows a WORLD of difference between he & Chris Brown. Weird because one of them actually harmed a human being, and he’s the one who’s acting the most entitled.

    I have no problem with the school choosing not to put up the jersey, maybe they want to wait until the school year is over, or maybe they don’t feel like it’s deserved right now. Either way, when you do something wrong, you accept the consequences. And Mike Vick is on the right path.

    The school who is looking out for their children’s best interests by not allowing a felon to be a role model are haters?

    Only in black America

  • Princess

    • Thibau

      And heres one misguided black youth whos too caught up in celebrity to know up from down right here. Too ignorant to even question the notion that theyre “haters” when They are the ones who originally put the jersey up in the first place.

      Yay for stupidity!

  • Cheeky

    This must be an all black ghetto high school, where else would they celebrate an animal torturing, convicted felon.

  • angie
