Last Saturday, Buffalo Bills linebacker Arthur Moats appeared on Fox News to discuss his initiative with United Way to recruit readers, tutors, and mentors for opportunity youth. The 2013 Walter Payton Man of the Year recipient also reflected on the mentors in his own life—his parents—who laid the foundation for his motivation to give back to the community and show children that with education and the courage to believe in themselves, they can achieve their dreams.

Arthur Moats’ work as an ambassador and advocate of of mentoring and volunteerism is truly inspirational, and we wish him all the best in the United Way Team NFL Playoff Challenge!
