Braylon Edwards received a ton of criticism while he played in Cleveland, but after reading this story I am sure many of those fans will see the wide receiver in a different light.
Recently Braylon Edwards followed through on a promise that he made to 100 eighth grade students in 2007. If the students graduated high school while maintaining a 2.5 grade point average and completing 15 hours of community service each year, Edwards would pay for their college tuition. Well the students held up their end of the deal and now Braylon is putting his money where his mouth is. Braylon Edwards will be donating $1 million dollars in scholarships to the 100 students that completed the ADVANCE100 program, which was established by Edwards foundation.
Braylon tweeted: “As the 2nd most hated man in Clev & a man of my word, today I will honor a promise made to 100 students in Cleveland years ago. The last of my Advance 100 students will graduate from my program and head off to college on scholarships that I will provide them with. Guys, enjoy and embrace your new beginnings and remember your promise to me, to reach back & help someone else along the way.”
