Default Larry Foote Seeks Custody of Son

Steelers linebacker Larry Foote seeks custody of son
Wednesday, June 28, 2006

The Associated Press

Pittsburgh Steelers linebacker Larry Foote has asked a Michigan court to award him custody of a 10-year-old son he says he did not know existed until nearly two years ago.

Foote, 26, who has homes in Pittsburgh and the Detroit suburb of West Bloomfield Township, made his request in a recent filing in Oakland County Circuit Court. A hearing is scheduled for July 5 before Judge Cheryl Matthews.

The 6-foot, 239-pound Foote played at Michigan and is a starting linebacker for the Steelers.

In the filing, Foote seeks an order granting him temporary custody of Trey-Veion Hammond. He acted after the boy's mother threatened to take the boy from Foote.

"Larry has stepped up to take responsibility for his son from the moment he learned of him," Foote lawyer Francis X. Bujold II told The Detroit News for a story Wednesday. "Now he hopes to make it permanent."

Trey-Veion's mother, Khalila Shanese Hammond of Inkster, said she was surprised when she received the filing. She said she appreciates Foote's actions on behalf of their son but says the boy is homesick and should not stay with Foote full-time.

"It's not going to happen," Hammond said. "I'm going to fight him."

The boy is no homesick. The lady is tripping. We all saw it on NFL web. The boy was happy with his dad. I still have the USA Today issue with him and Foote. Larry is THE MAN. I would've done the same. Good luck.

Good luck Larry.
I guess the best Larry can hope for is Joint Custody so he can at least have an Official/Legal voice in his sons life.

Good for her, I am glad she is going to stand up for herself and at least get joint custody of the son she has raised for 10 years. No judge will give him sole custody. That child has 2 parents and deserves to be with both of them. Keep in kind I do not know the whole story but I do think if she is a good mom.......

Good for her? Sorry, but I must disagree. This woman was 24 when she conceived. Foote was 15. This was statutary (sp?) rape. She then waits until Foote gets a nice payday when he signed his new contract, and only then bothers to tell him that he has a son. A good mother would not keep her son from knowing his own father until it was to her financial benefit.

I'm sorry but it's wrong not to tell the father about the boy until 2 years ago. Credit to Larry for stepping up. A lot of guys wouldn't have.

If I were 15 or 16, I don't think I would want to know I had a kid. My parents already yell at me enough.

But to look at it from the woman's perspective, had she told Foote when he was 15 or 16 that she was pregnant with his baby, she easily could have been accused for statutory rape. It's a sticky situation, but then again what are you doing with a 15-year-old to begin with? I do agree, however, that she would have never told Foote that he had a son unless he could benefit her financially.

Seriously what was she doing with this a 15/16 year old. She doesn't sound too intelligent.

We need to figure out what kind of mother she is before we can give too much of an opinion....
Credit to Foote for being a man.
But then again.......hes a Pittsburgh Steeler
