He cares about the kids as people before football players, and has built a great relationship with every single coach and player on the team. When he’s with his team, it’s all love and excitement. He serves as a pillar of the North Minneapolis community. He truly cares about kids. To parents he is a big brother. He is visible in the community, at a time, when our kids need to see people they know and trust."
