It is very rare to hear a positive story about a National Football League player doing something good with the money that he has earned playing in the NFL.
Well today is that rare day as coming out of Alabama is some good news about a NFL player.
According to Pro Football Talk, the University of Alabama has announced that former Crimson Tide and current Houston Texans linebacker Demarco Ryans has donated $300 thousand to the school to endow a scholarship for a football student athlete that is attending the Culverhouse College of Commerce and Business Administration.
It is nice to see a player giving back to the school that gave him a chance to make the NFL. You see athletes make donations all the time to children’s hospitals and other sorts of charities, but not to schools. Now, don’t get me wrong I am not saying that they aren’t deserving of the money. What I am saying is that there are other charities and families that sometimes get left out in the cold.
For example, a lot of times when there are budget problems with the government schools raise tuition and that makes it harder for students from lower income families to attend school. If they do when they are done they leave school with a mountain of student loans to help pay for books and other expenses.
In the end, if turds like Aqib Talib learn to act like Ryans their career wouldn’t be so darn short.
