After spending a few years playing in the NFL, I moved back home to Massachusetts where I underwent two back surgeries. The realization that my football career was over was very challenging. When you have been working your entire life towards a set of goals, it is discouraging knowing how close I was to achieving all of them.
After deciding to start the next chapter of my life in Boston, I wanted to be a part of something bigger than just my personal and professional life. When a friend of mine told me about Minds Matter, I knew it was something I wanted to be a part of. Whether it was at the University of Georgia or in the National Football League, we always were giving back to the community and attempting to make a positive impact on young people's lives. This has been my way to continue that tradition in this new chapter of life.
Minds Matter is a national non-profit organization that helps underprivileged, but academically motivated, youth achieve their goals by excelling in the classroom and community. Ultimately, their goal is to gain acceptance into some of the some of the most prestigious colleges & universities. In order for our kids to achieve their goals we constantly need to raise money to make sure our students are not at a disadvantage when it comes to the application process.
I know the holiday season can be costly, but everyone at Minds Matter - including myself - would be so appreciative of any donation. Thank you for your help and if you are interested in becoming a mentor visit www.mindsmatter.com and see if there is a chapter in your city.
