ABOUT Morlon Greenwood

Morlon Greenwood was born in Kingston, Jamaica. At the age of 11, he came to the United States, where he found himself living in Freeport, on Long Island, New York. Being a Jamaican, his first love was soccer. However, he found himself with an active interest in many sports such as, wrestling, football and track and field. It was in his freshman year of high school that the gym teacher and assistant wrestling coach, Russ Cellan, tapped into Greenwood’s natural talent for wrestling. During Greenwood’s sophomore year, he took 4th place in the Nassau County Wrestling Championship. Cellan, who was also the football coach, persuaded Greenwood to give football a shot; a decision that would prove to be significant. At the end of his junior year at Freeport High School, Greenwood was awarded a full football scholarship to Syracuse University. Not one to forgo his love of multiple sports, he continued to participate in both wrestling and track and field throughout his junior and senior years, making him the proverbial, “triple threat.” His abilities were proven when he became the first ever state champion; a first for his coach Terry Haise, in his 26-year career at Freeport High School. Greenwood’s athletic successes didn’t end there.

After starting in 48 consecutive games at Syracuse University, Greenwood was drafted by the Miami Dolphins in 2001 as a 3rd round pick. His professional career as an NFL linebacker covered a span of eight years (playing four years for the Miami Dolphins and then four more for the Houston Texans as a starter.)

During 2009, he became a free agent and waited (like many other professional athletes) to be selected by an NFL team.  Not one to sit idly by awaiting opportunity to present itself, the NFL veteran decided to expound upon his love of music which he had developed from the age of 14.  Greenwood took-on the stage name “Ultimate” later that year and recorded “Take Me There” which created a buzz on rhythmic radio.  “Take Me There” was followed by “It’s My Birthday” which soon became the #1 song added to rhythmic radio which featured independent artists.  In 2010, Greenwood continued his professional football career by signing with the Omaha Nighthawks of the United Football League (UFL) where he played for three years.  Greenwood’s universal athleticism was not confined to football during those years.  During the off-season, Greenwood cross-trained with boxing, and once again determined to become the best.  It only took a few months of training with Dwight Pratchett before Greenwood turned professional.  Greenwood currently holds a record of 3-0 with 3 KO’s, two of which came in the first round.  With the same determination, Greenwood endeavored to “give back to the community” by reaching-out to at-risk and underprivileged youth so as to share with them the opportunities and keys to success in life which reside in each and every individual regardless of personal circumstance(s).  This passion lead to the formation of the Morlon Greenwood Foundation, Inc. which is a recognized 501 (c) 3 not for profit organization. The Morlon Greenwood Foundation’s mission is, “Raise-up youth to become successful socially responsible citizens through mentorship imparted to encourage the realization of their full potential while respecting diversity within the community”.  “Believe it and you WILL achieve it” serves as a reinforcing motto for the Foundation.  Greenwood sums it up best in saying, “To be a success, you must keep in mind that it’s not where you start but where you finish and a plan to start fast and finish strong is essential to reaching one’s goals in life.”  Through the Foundation’s vast network of like-minded organizations along with financial support from the local and National community, The Morlon Greenwood Foundation, Inc. has been able to reach over 2,000 youths during the past 4 years and that number is growing evermore day-by-day.  Please see more under the heading “About Foundation” to learn more about the purpose, endeavors, and accomplishments of the Morlon Greenwood Foundation.

ABOUT THE FOUNDATION

The Morlon Greenwood Foundation provides socially and economically disadvantaged students with creative, community-based, high-quality programs designed specifically to channel youths’ intellects while honing their individual academic, athletic, and social skills.  Strengthening youths’ connections to their respective communities while positively influencing their individualized skill sets through education and athletics provides the structure necessary for these youths to become upstanding members within their communities and abroad.

Our plan of action is to deploy leadership and mentoring programs within the communities we serve.  We develop and implement these programs in conjunction with school administrations, teachers, and coaches in elementary, middle, and highs schools.  The programs are designed to focus upon leadership training while setting academic, social, and athletic goals for the youth.  We also work with other community-based organizations aligned with our mission statement so as to maximize the effectiveness upon the youth.  All of our programs are set to meet the specific needs of each individual youth we support.

We understand in many of the neighborhoods we serve, there are a large number of single-parent households and parents who have to work while their children are out of school.  We also recognize youths’ minds wander and their decision-making process is often compromised if left unchecked in the absence of structure.  The foundation looks to be a positive outlet and influence upon the youth throughout the calendar year.  Our mentorship program is designed around sports and activities camps bringing together children within the communities served by the Foundation  in order to promote comradery and healthy competition.  The camps are designed to educate youths on the fundamentals and values of sportsmanship, team work, accountability, and respect for diversity.  Youths also have mentors in the form of older youth, coaches, athletes, and industry professionals specifically focused upon helping the youth make the proper choices when faced with adversity or negative peer pressure.

Our Goal is to continuously develop a community of support with current and former professional athletes, school districts, local businesses, and corporate sponsors committed to providing resources inclusive of time, commitment, and financial support allowing Foundation the opportunity to continuously expand the reach and effectiveness of  our programs.

The Morlon Greenwood Foundation looks forward to speaking with, mentoring, and encouraging other like-minded 501(c) (3) organizations wishing to become involved with us in addition to those seeking guidance, direction, and support.  If welcomed, The Morlon Greenwood Foundation is prepared to work in a hands-on manner inclusive of financial support of those organizations positively reinforcing the maturation of socially and economically disadvantaged youth.
