Football gives me the opportunity to have a platform in which I can speak on so many levels to many different people.
Through my work with Fellowship of Christian Athletes, I have had the ability to speak to youth about Jesus Christ and what it means to be a Christian.
Throughout my college career I had the privileged opportunity to speak at schools, visit hospitals, and participate with my local FCA organization.
Now that I’m playing in the NFL, I’m excited to continue giving back to that community. My goal is to reach out to local youth to spread the message of Christ, and inspire and challenge them to become better individuals. I also have a huge heart for children’s hospitals around the U.S. My son spent his first 23 days in Valley Children’s Hospital where they provided him with exceptional care and were so good to my family. Giving back to children’s hospitals around America is very near and dear to my heart.
One of the largest hospitals of its type in the nation, Valley Children’s Hospital is the regional referral center for pediatric medicine located between the Bay Area and Los Angeles. A nonprofit, 356-bed, state-of-the-art facility on a 50-acre campus, Valley Children’s is home to more than 550 physicians trained to address the unique healthcare needs of children. The mission of Valley Children’s Hospital is to provide high-quality, comprehensive healthcare services to children, regardless of their ability to pay, and to continuously improve the health and wellbeing of children.
