Karl Joseph played football at West Virginia University and after graduation was drafted by the Oakland Raiders in 2016. His mother relocated their family to Orlando, Florida from Haiti when he was eleven years old. As a single mother she raised two boys and taught them the value of hard work. Being raised by such an empowering female figure, Karl Joseph learned the key to success: dedication and strong-will.
Joseph is passionate about providing local and global communities with opportunities to achieve their goals. In 2018 he volunteered with Cliff Avril Family Foundation to promote healthy lifestyles and also incorporate athletic opportunities for Haitian children and families. Locally, he has extended his philanthropic acts to the community by financially sponsoring students and paying for their education.
He believes that providing educational opportunities for the youth is vital to the successful society of tomorrow.
