501(c)(3) Non-Profit Organization
MADLINEMAN is the acronym for, Making a Difference One Lineman at a Time.
MADLINEMAN is a 501(c)(3) non-profit organization that promotes character development, leadership skills, health/fitness, and most importantly; scholastic goal setting/achievement to deserving inner city student-athletes with socio-economic challenges in their lives. MADLINEMAN uses position-specific instruction to teach proper fundamentals and technique to be successful on the football field, while mentoring our youth on what it takes to be SUCCESSFUL IN LIFE.
MADLINEMAN strongly believes the majority of all football games are won or lost from battles, IN THE TRENCHES. However, In the Trenches of Life, we are losing the majority of the battles our youth face in inner city communities from: high dropout rates, childhood obesity problems, and poor funding for youth and high school football programs. Throughout my Collegiate/NFL career, I have seen firsthand that some of the finest athletes come from all walks of life. As a former student-athlete and NFL lineman, I want to communicate the importance of character development, leadership skills, health/fitness, and most importantly; scholastic goal setting/achievement.
The MADLINEMAN primary initiative stems from personal experiences throughout, my youth and NFL career. The MADLINEMAN provides a nurturing learning environment for offensive and defensive linemen to work on fundamentals and techniques of the game. MADLINEMAN is committed to fostering diversity. We respect any differences in culture, age, race, ethnicity, physical ability, and religious affiliation.
