Inspirational Leader of the Day: Braylon Edwards


It is refreshing to see men whose word is their bond. It is also inspiring to see that there are still athletes who display all of the qualities of a true role model. Such is the case of New York Jets wide receiver Braylon Edwards who made good on a promise he made a few years ago to send 100 Cleveland area kids to college.  Edwards will be giving $1 million to the ADVANCE 100 program, which was established by his foundation while he played in Cleveland. Although he has dubbed himself the “2nd most hated man in Cleveland,” he never faltered on his promise and stands by that fact that he’s a man of his word.

“Guys, enjoy and embrace your new beginnings,” Edwards tweeted, “and remember your promise to me, to reach back & help someone else along the way.” Hopefully these young people will follow in the footsteps of their mentor and stay true to their word to play it forward. Giving back to the community helps to foster a culture of hope and inspiration.
