Giving back to his alma mater – by Mike Dyer from

Almost all high schools in America do not have enough funds for their athletic programs for state of the art equipment for the players, no matter what sport is talked about.  However, if possible, most players, especially in football, if they make it to the National Football League, find a way to utilize some of their money to help out their alma maters.

Luke Kuechly went to St. Xavier High School in Cincinnati and recently, through USA Football, who is the official youth football development partner of the NFL and the Carolina Panthers, gave a contribution to his high school, which helped out.
