We are excited to have Maurice Clarett speaking at both services on Sunday, August 28th. Maurice's story has had it shares of high and lows that has brought him to be a much sought out speaker.
Maurice had a successful year at Ohio State in 2001 becoming the first freshman running back to start, being named Big Ten freshman of the year, and setting the freshman rushing and touchdown season record. He was also instrumental in helping Ohio State clinch the National Championship in 2002 with two pivotal plays, "the strip" and scoring the go ahead touchdown. This was Maurice's only season at Ohio State when he attempted to enter the NFL draft.
After much success on the field Maurice had trouble finding that same level of success off of the field and found himself serving a 7 1/2 year prison sentence. It was there that Maurice began to take that work ethic and discipline that brought him so much success as a football player and began to focus it on himself as a person. It was this type of leadership that permitted him to be released 4 years early.
Upon being released Maurice has travelled the country allowing him to connect, educate, and empower people in their life and/or profession. His ability to connect with his audience in a practical way leaves those who hear his words feeling inspired.
Join us on August 28th and invite a friend to hear his inspirational story.
