The NFL is America’s favorite sports league, so whenever a player is charged with a crime, it makes it to front-page news.
Take Ray Rice, Adrian Peterson, Adrian Hernandez, Greg hardy, and Tyreek Hill, for example, who have all helped the NFL earn the nickname the “National Felon League”.
However, when an NFL player makes a positive impact on the community, it rarely gets the attention it deserves, and that’s why people should know Dre Greenlaw.
The 21-year-old Greenlaw was selected in the fifth round of the NFL draft by the San Francisco 49ers, but one Arkansas student will remember him more for his courage at a party than on the gridiron.
The story was shared by a dad named Gerry Daly, and it only came to light after Greenlaw was drafted.
Greenlaw’s story goes beyond the field of sports, and it serves as a great example for everyone on how to be on the look-out for signs of assault and how to do something about it.
