Do More

"This organization was one of the greatest blessings of my life. I grew up as a troubled kid, and meeting Tyjuan's friends allowed me to build a strong support system. They became father figures that kept up with me throughout the years. Their guidance outside the field led me to make something more of myself. These are men of strong morals that instilled in me discipline and organization."
