Mike Tyson and Maurice Clarett were two athletes who I thought were destiny to spend the rest of their life in prisons or be dead by now.
Thankfully, both have turned their life around.
RugbyMag reports that the 29-year old has joined Tiger Rugby Olympic Development Program in Columbus, Ohio, with the hopes of making the 2016 Rugby Olympic team.
Director Paul Holmes seems to think Clarett has what it takes to actually make the team. He offered, “He’s ridiculous. That’s all I can say. His footwork is phenomenal. He’s nowhere near conditioned for rugby, but that will come…The stuff he’s doing in the gym right now, he’s just ridiculous.”
