Prior to his gig with the Wolverines, Prince spent four seasons with the Lions before he was relieved of his duties on Jan. 1, 2018.
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.
He’s donated tickets to first-responders, worked with organizations to reach out to kids about health and wellness, and also been known to privately help various causes and people in need under the condition it’s not publicized.
