White High School Football Player Under Fire For Throwing Up GANG Sign In Official Photo

You never want to throw up a gang sign, especially during an official photo shoot. A senior running back in Indiana is under fire for doing exactly that. Martinsville High School football player Austen Frye is going viral after he threw up an apparent gang sign for his football team’s official photo. Frye was photographed placing his hands in what many are calling “the rakes” a hand sign used by Gangster Disciples gang members.

Apparently he turned the gang sign upside down, which is known as “dropping the rakes.”

Twitter reacted:




The Gangster Disciples throw up rakes, and their enemies throw them down which is seen as a disrespectful gesture towards the gang.

This kid probably has no idea what he was doing.

No hand gestures is probably the safest route on photo day.
