Cornerback Ha Ha Clinton-Dix has launched an initiative called Ha Ha's HERO Foundation to help economically challenged students.

The foundation aims to provide students with motivation, empowerment and encouragement. The goal is to help a student be a "HERO," which stands for hope, education, resources and opportunities

"This community has been so great to me and I just wanted to give back and be a part of it," Clinton-Dix said.
