Global Chairman Mitchell Mortaza had this to say about the arrival of
Gary Clark to the LFL, “As a Redskins fan, I remember our glory days of
the late 80s and early 90s… of course Gary was at the heart of those
winning teams. Having met with Gary, you get an instant sense of his
commitment to bring that winning culture to the Charm. We felt this
franchise needed better guidance and a shift in mentality. Gary and his
staff will bring just that”.
