At the Northwestern Pro Day, I’m Repping For Rare Diseases and need your help!

As I take a step toward my NFL dream, I’d like to use this opportunity to give back. I have committed my performance at the Northwestern Pro Day to support Uplifting Athletes and its mission to inspire the Rare Disease Community with hope through the power of sport.

Uplifting Athletes was an important part of my college experience. I will never forget Lift for Life and the way it brought the Northwestern Football Team together in support of this great cause. I learned how common rare diseases really are through the Northwestern Chapter leaders. This moved me to want to do something to help the 30 million Americans that are living with a rare disease.

Fans and supporters can pledge for each punt with more than 4 seconds of hang time I hit (my goal is 7) at the Northwestern Pro Day on March 12th.

Please join my team by making a pledge today!

How you can help

About Uplifting Athletes

A nonprofit organization founded in 2007, Uplifting Athletes inspires the Rare Disease Community with hope through the power of sport. A rare disease is one that affects fewer than 200,000 Americans and typically lacks financial incentive to make and market new treatments. Uplifting Athletes fulfills its mission through a unique network of college football student-athlete led chapters, Uplifting Ambassadors and Team UA participants.

Since its inception, Uplifting Athletes has raised more than $4.5 million in support of the Rare Disease Community with a third of that, $1.5 million, given to fund rare disease research. To learn more about Uplifting Athletes visit
