Former Navy SEAL & NFL athlete | Entrepreneur | Philanthropist
Clint Bruce was born in Arkansas and raised in Texas. A standout football player in his youth, Bruce was given the opportunity to play at multiple Division One programs. Ultimately, Clint took his sense of patriotism and passion for the game to the United States Naval Academy where he became one of the most decorated Navy Athletes in the Academy’s history. He was a 4-year letter winner, captain of the football team, MVP, and named to multiple all-star teams during his career. Clint is also one of the few service academy athletes given the opportunity to play professionally with the National Football League’s Baltimore Ravens and New Orleans Saints.
In 1998 Clint made the tough decision to leave the NFL and completed Basic Underwater Demolition SEAL (BUDS) training Class 217, with assignment to SEAL Team 5 in Coronado, California. Clint participated in direct support of Counter-Terrorism Missions and the Global War on Terror.
Since his departure from the Navy, Clint has founded two companies and one Foundation. The first, Trident Response Group (TRG), is a trusted adviser analyzing risk for America’s top businesses, leaders, and families.
Clint lives in Dallas with his college sweetheart and their children.
