Last month, I was contacted by the good folks at United Way of Central Maryland to produce a PSA with Baltimore Ravens cornerback Lardarius Webb, who happens to workout in the offseason right here in Miami. Webb is joining NFL players from around the league to help reduce the dropout rate by recruiting 99,000 volunteer readers, tutors and mentors as part of United Way TEAM NFL, a program stemming from the organizations’ 40-year partnership that is committed to cutting America’s dropout rate in half by 2018.
You can partner with Lardarius Webb (who was a really nice guy) by clicking the banner above or visit www.unitedway.org/team-nfl to find your favorite NFL team and get involved by entering the draft and becoming a volunteer, spreading the word (please share this post on your social networks), or making a donation.
Here’s the video, which we shot at the Bommarito Performance Systems training facility in Miami. Enjoy…
