Every year each NFL team nominates one of their own for the prestigious Walter Payton Man of the Year Award. Last year, Aaron Rodgers was a finalist for the award that went to Carolina’s Thomas Davis.
This year Sam Barrington is the Packers’ nominee. Apparently, the injury that sent Barrington to the IR has not stopped him from working for his foundation- Barrington’s Dream Builders. His foundation is dedicated to raising money for Green Bay Schools, building winter facilities for sports, and offering a bus service that would allow students to attend classes not offered by their schools.
Barrington is being recognized for his foundation, his work with other charitable organizations and for generally being a great guy. Props to Sam.
