Maurice Clarett - A football star's second act

Maurice Clarett was once college football’s top running back, good enough to lead Ohio State to a National Championship.

But, substance abuse and legal troubles derailed Clarett’s pro career before it ever got started.

Now, after spending years in prison, Clarett has turned his life around with a promising business career and starting a program to help at-risk children make the right choices in life.
