Be a Buddy: Meet Damarrion

MIDLAND, Tx. (KOSA) -- Damarrion was all smiles with a hand on the wheel and his foot on the accelerator in a racing arcade game at Mr. Gatti’s.

“I want to be a police officer where I drive the police cars," Damarrion explained.

At 12-years-old, Damarrion has been dreaming of towing the thin blue line for more than half his life.

“Since I was 4 years old, I always like to pretend I was a police officer,” Damarrion explained.

Damarrion is enjoying summer break ahead of the start of middle school in August.

In sixth grade, it was a teacher, not necessarily a subject, who made a difference.

“The best part is we had the best science teacher, her name is Miss Fry," Damarrion said. "Miss Fry, if you’re watching this video, I hope I see you again."

Damarrion is committed to doing what it takes to don a police uniform an protect his community.

“I want to go to college and finish my degree, get a good degree and get a scholarship to be a police officer," Damarrion explained. "And then I got to go to police training and stuff like that to be a police officer. And I’ll just drive and try to catch bad guys.”

He’s just asking for a big brother in law enforcement to help him achieve this dream.

“I want him to be my future in my life," Damarrion said.

And Damarrion already has a heart full of gratitude for that man with a badge.

“Thank you for letting me turn into a police officer," Damarrion said to his future big brother.
