Continued from Part I
We put the film on hold to button up all the legal and contractual stuff with ESPN Films.
While we waited for that to be sorted out Jeff and Mike explained to me exactly how they wanted to approach this 'Maurice Clarett documentary' project: They wanted to be analytical, examine my circumstances and take a more comprehensive look into where I came from and where I went to.
They wanted depth. It was so refreshing. I’ve always thought that if only my life could given the proper context, people might understand me better.
Jeff and Mike wanted to take the stories, the background, big-time college football, broader social problems - and put a face on them. My face.
