Clinton McDonald hosted military dads and children at One Buccaneer Place for Operation Fatherhood; an evening of football and family time.

Clinton McDonald is a leader on and off the field. As an 8-year veteran tackle, McDonald is a consistent force on the defensive line. Off the field, McDonald also serves as a force in the community while advocating for military members and their families.

On Monday evening, the 2017 Salute to Service nominee hosted Operation Fatherhood, welcoming more than 50 military fathers and their children to One Buccaneer Place. The private clinic allowed one-on-one downtime for fathers to connect with their children, through fun trivia and interactive drills.

Operation Fatherhood was the brain child of McDonald and Director of Player Engagement, Duke Preston. Joined by two team clinical psychologists, the group of fathers candidly shared the experiences of fatherhood using the team motto, C.O.M.P.E.T.E. as a tool. The discussion finished with a powerful exercise between father and child speaking to each other with words of affirmation.
