CLAY – Mobile native and former Clemson and Mississippi State football player Brandon Maye is scheduled to speak at Clay-Chalkville Middle School Friday morning.
The motivational speaker comes from meager beginnings, but uses those rough times to mold his message to teens across the nation. Maye was not highly recruited out of high school, but the determination he showed on the gridiron and in the classroom – he graduated Cum Laude from Clemson Univ. and obtained a Master’s from Mississippi State Univ. – to motivate teens and young adults.
“I wasn’t the biggest; I wasn’t the fastest, but I made a decision that I would out-work everyone, take advantage of every opportunity and chase greatness,” Maye writes in his promotional material.
