WARRENSVILLE HEIGHTS, Ohio - Former OSU football star Maurice Clarett does not shy away from the fact that he's made some poor choices in life. His peaks and valleys are what makes him the man he is today. 

From a college football champion to a convicted felon, Clarett has learned the value of choice. He recently spoke to a group of students, faculty and community leaders at Warrensville Heights School. Mayor Brad Sellers brought Clarett to his city because he was impressed with his testimony of  redemption.

Clarett shared how his philosophy of faith and discipline helped  turn his life around. He gave no excuses and owned the choices he made earlier in life.

But today he is a man on a mission. Determined to be a positive force used to enlighten young minds about the importance of education and choosing the right friends. He believes in establishing strong relationships with people who are positive and setting goals for yourself with a belief that you can achieve them.
