Every Wednesday night I volunteer my time to help a group of boys at my church. We help them play games, we have treats and we learn lessons about the Bible. The other volunteers and myself don't do it for the money. I, for one, do this because I know what it's like to hit bottom, and I do not want these kids to make the same mistakes that I did.

These people, who could be players or coaches, and who could be retired or presently playing, seek to go above and beyond the NFL as just a vocation and seek to be examples and mentors to others. This article is going to seek to promote those who do things of these nature, not just for their strong athletic prowess or leadership ability, but for their mentorship, as well to be the true role models for young people.
