Last Friday, Clark Academy launched a seminar in its the Male Enrichment Forum. Boys basketball coach Anthony Gaines and Tom Sampogna of Frenji Sports hosted the first in a new series of lectures at Clark when former Manhattan and Seton Hall coach Bobby Gonzalez visited the school’s student-athletes.
Gonzalez — who is currently a consultant for the Knicks who has also toured clinics and camps as a coach — spoke to students about making proper decisions and succeeding in life through education and athletics. Sampogna said Gonzalez challenged the students “to chase winning and make their own mark in this world.”
Clark Academy will continue the lecture series of its Male Enrichment Forum on a monthly basis. The school has already discussed bringing prominent current and former college and NBA coaches in to speak to its students.
