"So many times the narrative about black fathers and about black families is that they come from broken homes."

Clark mentions the story of Patrick Mahomes Sr needs to be told who was a professional MLB player for a number of years and is credited for jump-starting Patrickick Mahomes Jr. as a leader.

Averion Hurts was also mentioned as a long-time high school football coach and also was Jalen Hurts' high school football coach.
