A Cleat Design For Charity!

On Tuesday, November 19, 2019, Detroit Lions cornerback, Jamal Agnew, visited Detroit Lions Academy seeking creative inspiration. Detroit Lions Academy staff recruited five of our most artistic students to tackle the job. Jamal needed help creating a unique cleat design. This wasn't just any pair of cleats. These cleats would be auctioned off for "My Cleats My Cause". The proceeds would benefit a charity that Jamal Agnew is passionate about. Tristan Bell, Angel Milton, LaTesha Browning, Travonte Oatis-Henderson, and Danez Cole were the five students chosen. They shared their ideas and sketches with Jamal and a very talented artist that was able to transfer their visions onto the cleats.
