MUST SEE: Detroit Lions’ Matthew Stafford ‘Under the Helmet’

Published

on

Whether you love him or hate him, Detroit Lions quarterback Matthew Stafford is definitely a lightning rod around these parts (and even further) when it comes to his play on the field. There are plenty of fans who think he is the greatest thing since sliced bread while others want him out of town as soon as possible.

That being said, there is no question about it that Stafford is a blessing when it comes to the work he does in the community. Because of that, he was nominated for the 2018 Walter Payton Man of the Year Award.

The Detroit Lions have been running an “Under the Helmet” series throughout the season and on Thursday, they released an episode featuring Matthew Stafford.

Check it out.

Matthew Stafford nominated for the Walter Payton Man of the Year Award

Quarterback Matthew Stafford is the Detroit Lions‘ nominee for the 2018 Walter Payton Man of the Year Award. If selected as the winner, Stafford would be the first Lions player to bring home the honor.

The Walter Payton Man of the Year Award is presented to honor a player’s volunteer and charity work, as well as his excellence on the field. Each of the 32 NFL teams gets one nominee, and the winner is announced at the NFL Honors show on Feb. 2, the day before Super Bowl LIII in Atlanta.

Love him or hate him, there is no denying that Matthew Stafford is a worthy nominee. Some of Stafford’s most notable contributions to the community have come through S.A.Y. Detroit, an organization which aims to improve the lives of disadvantaged citizens through shelter, food, care, volunteer efforts, and education.

In 2015, Stafford donated $1 million to revive and maintain the Lipke Recreation Center after city budget cuts forced the center to close. Thanks to a partnership with the City of Detroit, S.A.Y Detroit, and Stafford’s own Score 7 Charitable Foundation, the Lipke Recreation Center was reopened as the S.A.Y Detroit Play Center in the Osborn neighborhood of Detroit.

Check it out.

Now, I know there is a .0000001% chance of this actually happening, but those players should be available when the Lions are on the clock in each round.
