Happy Fourth of July!

Jul. 4, 2019 Professional Athletes Foundation

We would like to take this opportunity to wish our entire former player community and their families a happy Fourth of July.   We hope you take this opportunity to appreciate the hard work you and your entire brotherhood of players, old and young, have put into making it to the NFL.  That hard work and dedication has made football the biggest attraction in America, and woven the game into the fabric of this great nation.

Finally, take a moment to thank your families and support networks, eat some good (and healthy) food and enjoy a beautiful summer day (and hopefully long weekend).

Happy Fourth of July!
