June 29, 2007

San Diego Chargers cornerback Cletis Gordon teamed with members of a MADD youth group place stickers on beers in a Vista, California liquor store, to teach customers to drink responsibily and not give alcohol to persons under 21.

In November, Gordon was downtown San Diego.

He got into his car and didn’t get far before the red light went on in his rearview mirror. Suspected of a San Diego California DUI / drunk driving, he was taken to the San Diego County Jail for a little visit. He passed the San Diego DUI field sobriety tests. San Diego DUI charges were dropped.

He learned he wanted to help San Diego youth. So he teamed up with Mothers Against Drunk Driving and started his own Sober Youth campaign to warn the youth about the dangers of underage drinking and San Diego DUI / San Diego Drunk Driving.

Gordon admirably launched his program. He spoke at Morse High. He will speak at more high schools and Boys and Girls clubs. Last week, he spoke to a group at Job Corps. Yesterday, he was at a MADD event at a Vista liquor store. What a great citizen.

“Celebrate sober. I came up with the idea because I’m against drunk driving,” says Gordon, who is on his way to football stardom despite not being drafted out of college. “That’s why I partnered with MADD, to jump-start this thing.

The students listen. They’re excited to see me.
“That night, I did have a couple of drinks, but I never would get behind the wheel drunk.

Never. I was sober. I’ve never been in any trouble in my life. I never got in trouble in high school or college. I have no history of this; that’s why I’m doing this now. I wasn’t raised like that. It’s dangerous. I’m trying to help kids make better decisions.”
