Ha’Sean Treshon “Ha Ha” Clinton-Dix is a free safety for the Green Bay Packers. Clinton-Dix left Alabama as a junior when he got drafted by the NFL. Now he wants to give back and make an impact off the field.

Clinton-Dix has started a charity called Ha Ha’s HERO Foundation. “HERO” is an acronym for “Hope, Education, Resources, and Opportunity” and his mission is to help children that come from low-income families.

Clinton-Dix has said that growing up he never took his education seriously and never read books unless he had to for school. He also had to repeat sixth grade. But now he will be finishing his undergraduate classes during the off season and even had an internship at the Brown County Courthouse in Green Bay as he aims to pursue a degree in criminal justice, according to USA Today.

He says that his main goal with Ha Ha’s HERO Foundation is “to show economically-disadvantaged children that role models come from a spectrum of occupations and backgrounds.”

Clinton-Dix also made the news recently for paying tribute to the slain officers from the Kissimmee Police Department in Florida by writing their names on his cleats.
