Brent Celek has a lot to be excited about these days…and who could blame him? Winning a division title in 2014, playing under offensive juggernaut Chip Kelly, planning a trip to the FIFA World Cup in Brazil and his alma mater, Cincinnati, off to a great start in college basketball.

When running back Maurice Jones-Drew entered the National Football League in 2006, many critics thought he was too small to be successful.
From the first time every young athlete steps onto a football field, they dream about winning a Super Bowl and holding up that Lombardi Trophy. James Ihedigbo, safety for the Baltimore Ravens, has now accomplished that but he isn’t completely satisfied. He aspires to help others receive the same opportunity that he was given.
Back in his playing days, Randall Cunningham was a true football pioneer, transcending how the quarterback position was played. Coming into the league as a second-round pick from UNLV, Randall overcame doubters and would-be tacklers to throw for 29,979 yards and 4,928 yards rushing (2nd all-time).
When Moise Fokou, a linebacker with the Indianapolis Colts, thought about how to give back to his community, he only had to look back at his own life. He remembers when an organization came to his hometown and took local kids, including him, on a shopping spree for new school supplies.
That event still sticks out in his mind and became a driving force for his foundation. “I kind of looked back at myself growing up and thought about the things I wanted and how I wanted people to help me,” Fokou stated. “I want [kids] to feel positive about going to school and help them along the journey of education like I had gotten help as a kid.”
In Week 12, New York Giants linebacker Michael Boley had four tackles in his team’s 38-10 romp of the Green Bay Packers. But his most important play was yet to be made. It would not be on the gridiron, but on the lanes as Boley hosted his third annual charity bowling event in Wallington, NJ. The money raised went to Intensive Therapeutics, a non-profit organization that offers occupational therapy services to children with autism and special needs.
This past Monday night, Chicago Bears kicker Robbie Gould hosted a fundraiser for his charity Goulden Touch at AJ Hudson’s Public House in the North Side of Chicago.
Gould, the fourth most accurate kicker in NFL history, launched the Goulden Touch charity organization in 2011 to balance the incredible importance of giving to others, while also making charitable giving fun.
This past summer, Dallas Cowboys wide receiver Miles Austin hosted his second annual Austin Family Foundation Golf Outing and Dinner at the North Jersey Country Club in Wayne, NJ.
14th Annual “Play with the Greats” Golf Classic
19 New York Giants members attended the 14th Annual “Play with the Greats” Golf Classic on May 16th at the Preakness Hiss Country Club in Wayne, New Jersey.

Big Blue Gives Back
We typically know football players only as athletes. Big, tall, strong men who we cheer on every Sunday and/or Monday night in the hopes of victory and team pride. But in a way, many of the fans get lost in the game. The sport of football is based so much on the entertainment factor now, that we typically forget that these are men, in every sense of the word. Despite all of the media attention through radio, television and newspapers, these are just men trying to make a living and who happen to have the support of thousands of people. At times, they might not show or say it, but they all appreciate the support that they get from their fan base.
