Philip Chism, the Massachusetts teenager who allegedly stabbed his teacher to death, was just starting to make friends at Danvers High School.
After a recent move with his family from Tennessee, Chism, 14, joined the junior varsity soccer team at the school.
“He just moved here so he didn’t have like a huge group of friends. But soccer’s one big family so we all knew him, we all liked him,” student Ryan Kelleher, told ABC News.
Despite his towering presence at 6-foot-2, teammates said Chism “just kept to himself” at soccer practice every day.
