Waterboy Bio

I started Waterboys because I realized I needed to take advantage of the platform that I have as an NFL player to effect change. Around the same time, I went to Tanzania to climb Mount Kilimanjaro. For me, that experience — seeing the poverty, the deficit in quality of life — gave me clarity about how I wanted to make a difference.

We’re lucky enough to work with experienced organizations like WorldServe and have a great donor base in NFL fans. When I recruit other Waterboys, I say, “Hey, this an easy way to make a difference and do something special. We have a window of opportunity as players to make a real difference, and we can’t waste it.”
