Ahmad Isiah Price, affectionately known as Maddie, arrived into this world through the union of Artimeshia Eboné Mitchell and Juan DeMarzio Price on October 3, 1999 in Portsmouth, VA. Ahmad accepted and believed in a Higher Power at an early age and was extremely spiritual.

He amassed many accolades in the sport including leading Fern Creek to its first ever and second 6th Region titles, being named honorable mention All-State, IUS New-Comer of the Year and 2nd team All league honors in the River States Conference.
