The blueprint starting the vision is Jerry Easter II, the 6 foot-5 freshman basketball prodigy from Emmanuel Christian School in Toledo, Ohio, where he is a 3.9 GPA student and has been ranked as the #1 9th grader in the country, holding Power-5 offers from UCLA, Ohio State, and Michigan State before he ever played one high school game. He’s currently holding a season average of 25 points, 11 rebounds, 7 assists, & 5 steals per game while leadings his team to a 10-2 record to date.

This concept of nurturing and working with high character young athletes alongside their families to afford them a unique situation where all of the relationships consisting of a group of culturally diverse individuals spread throughout multiple industries will be utilized to develop long- term connections and ventures in the arts. It will consist of: mentorship from a field made up of: iconic sports figures to be announced; acting, writing, producing, directing; and music to encompass all of the creative endeavors.

Clevinger said, “We want to give the next generation opportunities to break down doors and barriers with support behind them and a unified vision to excel at their sports ambitions, desires, and dreams, before they ever step into any setting  and have a legacy prepared for themselves years in advance.”

“We will give these unique talents the opportunities to control their own futures and sustain mental health in a family multi-cultural environment,” Clevinger continues. In order to tap into the dreams, voices, and cultural beliefs that few other environments can offer. In my career I’ve always felt this was bigger than myself, and for me [it] has always been about loyalty to those who helped pave a way.”
