A brief profile piece about Rickie Massie from Barrio Venice. Focused on the obstacles he has faced from the surrounding gang lifestyle both on the street and in the water, his efforts to prove a barrio kid can make it, the unique encouragement from those around him, and his goal of ultimately making it into the Top 44 by 1999.
