A Cleveland Player, Mayor, and an ex TPS Super

My buddy (not really) Braylon Edwards gave 1 million of his hard earned NFL earnings to the Cleveland School System for the advancement of a new scholarship program. The mayor of Cleveland was also in the house, in addition to our famed Dr. Eugene Sanders former Toledo Public Schools.

Other than being there, they did not mention Sanders as being a critical component of this event.

Looks like Braylon has his own foundation dedicated to underserved youth and educational opportunities. Here is a link to his foundation.

I think it is great that athletes venture out from their NFL roles and give back to the community. I also saw on his site that he fed 500 families from Detroit and had this to say:

“I am grateful to be in a position where I contribute to the lives of so many people,” Edwards says. “It feels good to return home to see family and friends, but more importantly, to make a difference.”

You go Braylon.

Cavs won tonight too.
