Braylon Edwards was very popular in the headlines for all the wrong reasons not too long ago. His name could have easily been added to my earlier Celebrity Trouble Again? blog. This time he’s being recognized for a good play off of the field.
Jets wide receiver Braylon Edwards is a man of his word. And because he is, 100 students are going to college on his dime. In 2007, Edwards promised 100 Cleveland high school students that he would pay for their college tuition—a total value of $1 million—if they maintained grade point averages at 2.5 or higher and performed 15 hours of community service. The students lived up to their end of the bargain, and now Edwards is living up to his end, according to CBSSports.com and the Detroit Free Press.
