rtunately for Clayton, the Ravens understood his fervor to finish.
"I’m blessed to be in an organization that trusts that I’ll handle myself like a pro in whatever environment or atmosphere that I’m in,” he said.
Clayton’s environment this spring was Norman. The 27-year-old NFL veteran was surrounded by college freshmen who were barely out of high school.
"I felt kind of like that guy in ‘Old School’ ... hanging around just wanting to be young,” Clayton said.
Clayton said he plans on becoming a counselor after his pro football career. He wants to take his message of finishing to young adults.
"There’s some kids that are really lost,” Clayton said. "They just need some direction and some guidance. I want to help them make it a goal to finish college like I did.”
