While new age media outlets seek TV ratings by highlighting controversy surrounding the NFL, NFL Alumni Chapter's Nationwide continue to stand as pillars of leadership in various cities and regions in the USA.
Just this passed Sunday, the NFL Alumni DET Chapter and Microsoft coupled to host a Madden 19 tournament at the Somerset Collection Microsoft Store in Troy,MI. A number of around 120 featured kids, Local Youth League Directors, parents, NFL Alumni Admin, and former Detroit Lions players to attend for a time of charity and fun. I had the pleasure of engaging the participants in the Madden tournament who selected teams in variety from the Cowboys, Jaguars, to Raiders. Kids received prizes, backpacks, and autographed footballs and complimentary refreshments from Hungry Howie's Pizza. While this event may not be as exciting as the 1:00 p.m. NFL games that will air this upcoming season, it'll be remembered as yet another NFL Alumni DET Chapter outreach event to enrich the local metropolitan community.
