Tyrus McCloud - President
Who is Tyrus McCloud? If you’ve ever had the opportunity to meet him, you will understand why he is more than his accolades, you can search for on Google. Born and Raised in Pompano Beach, Florida. His story is like many misguided children in our community today. He grew up in a fatherless home which led to a life of neglect, lack of support, disciplinary and identity issues. He struggled with expressing his anger and became a bully. He took his insecurities and pain out on anyone who stood in his way. This helped fuel his desire to play football. From High School to the University of Louisville and eventually drafted by the Baltimore Ravens as a professional football player in the NFL, Tyrus dedicated his life to the game.
After a career ending injury in his fourth year in the NFL, he began seeking his true purpose. As a natural leader he used his influence to make a positive impact in the lives of people around him. He completed his Bachelors in Justice Administration and Master’s degree in Public Administration from the University of Louisville.. He continued to press forward and began serving with Prison Fellowship, a ministry that rehabilitates and restores the lives of incarcerated men and women. The story of his life was now about making a difference, by becoming a mentor for troubled young men and women who faced the same obstacles. His purpose is to share his story and help the youth see that life is made up of four quarters, if you don’t quit and keep pressing forward, you’ll give yourself the best chance to win the game.
