Proceeds benefit Uplifting Athletes, Inc.
Based on 32 vertical leap inches, each worth $20.78
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 NFL Combine to support Uplifting Athletes and its mission to inspire the rare disease community with hope through the power of sport.
I was honored to be part of our Nebraska Chapter, and the Road Race experience with my teammates was something I will never forget. Uplifting Athletes was an important part of my college experience, and that is why I’ve chosen to launch my Reps for Rare Diseases campaign in support of the rare disease community.
Fans and supporters can pledge for every inch of my vertical jump (my goal is 30) at the NFL Combine on March 2.
Please join my team by making a pledge today!

Uplifting Athletes inspires the rare disease community with hope through the power of sport and empowers medical researchers to find cures. A rare disease is one that affects fewer than 200,000 Americans and consequently lacks financial incentive to make and market new treatments.
Founded in 2007, Uplifting Athletes has college football student-athlete led chapters nationwide in FBS and FCS programs including half the schools in the Big Ten and ACC conferences.
Nebraska football started tackling rare diseases in 2012 when it joined Uplifting Athletes. The student-athlete led chapter serves the rare disease community in honor of a relationship between pediatric brain cancer patient Jack Hoffman and former Huskers and current New England Patriots running back Rex Burkhead.
Thank you for your support of my campaign and the rare disease community. Every little bit helps. Please don’t forget to share this campaign and your support on social media (Facebook, Twitter, Instagram, etc.)
