An Evening With Maurice Clarett

Join Mayor Bradley D. Sellers and the Warrensville Heights City School District for An Evening with Maurice Clarett, hosted by WEWS TV/NEWSNET 5 news anchor, Danita Harris, on Wednesday, May 7, 2014, beginning at 7:00 p.m. at the Warrensville Heights High School Auditorium. Doors will open promptly at 6:30 p.m.

Maurice Clarett became a name known throughout the nation’s sports community while in high school, and had continued success at The Ohio State University where he became the first and only true freshman to start at running back, and set the freshman single season rushing and touchdown record.

The peak of his successful freshman season came when Maurice scored the winning touchdown in a double overtime win over the Miami Hurricanes, making the Ohio State Buckeyes National Champions in 2002.

After that season, Maurice fell into a spiral of poor decisions that cost him continuing success in football and three and a half years in prison.

Since Maurice’s release in 2010, he has been committed to restoring his life and reputation as a man who lives and acts with integrity, and is guided by the morals and values as dictated by his strong Christian faith. Maurice now travels speaking to schools, universities, churches, and business organizations, sharing his journey.

Pick up FREE tickets for this event at Warrensville Heights City Hall, 4301 Warrensville Center Road, beginning Monday, April 21. For more info, please call (216) 587-6500
