This is how Emmanuel Sanders makes a difference

New, comments

And it has little to do with what he does on the football field.

We often lose sight of what NFL players do in the community. The focus is on the stats, the wins, the losses, but the real impact is felt in what NFL players do outside the lines. Emmanuel Sanders shared his work with The Players’ Tribune this week and it was nothing short of inspiring.

As a parent, I have seen first-hand how difficult it is for schools to find the funds necessary to keep their youth sports programs going. I’m very proud and happy to see that this is an issue Sanders is taking on with his foundation. He gets a big ole Mile High Salute from me!
