Clarence Washington is a manager of infrastructure architecture and engineering and has a strong belief in finding a way to give back to the community and blessing others with the things that you have yourself been blessed with. Clarence works with inner-city youth and uses sports (football) to reach children that we otherwise would not be able to reach. Although they have been a perennially successful and winning program, winning is not emphasized as the most important outcome. They believe in success. Wins and losses are short term outcomes, and even in an individual defeat successes can be found. Success on the field and in life comes with hard work, discipline, and perseverance. With those things there is no need to focus on the score, or even wins and losses on the field or in life because success is a byproduct of those things. Clarence and his team of coaches and mentors teach and live by that ethic.
