I see it as a blessing and it is my responsibility and a duty of mine to reach back and help others because there were so many who reached back and helped me. I have had the opportunity to speak to thousands of youth across the country about the importance of not giving up, both in life and on themselves. Adversity is a part of life and we will all face it, probably many times, that is out of our control; how we respond to it is what we control.
With the help of a great group of sponsors and a small group of volunteers we are trying to make a difference for our youth. The mission of the Footz Foundation is to educate, empower and inspire youth to believe and achieve, promoting future success through life’s challenges. We hold several annual events including youth football camps, scholarships, school supply giveaways, speaking engagements and fundraisers, to help our youth, to strengthen families, schools and communities.
