I'm honored to have received the Best Breakthrough Athlete Award at the ESPYS last week, but I believe all 4 nominees deserve recognition for their achievements. This week's #TriviaTuesday question...
I am Richard Sherman of the Seattle Seahawks and the best cornerback in the NFL. Numbers don’t lie – since coming into this league; no other cornerback has shutdown wide receivers and quarterbacks like me.
Off the field, I am a philanthropist, entertainer, entrepreneur, writer and family man. You don’t even know half of it…
Blanket Coverage, the Richard Sherman Family Foundation, was formed in 2013 by Richard Sherman to provide students in low-income communities with school supplies and clothing so they can more adequately achieve their goals.
During his high school days, his childhood idol Magic Johnson came to Dominguez High School in Compton, CA and spoke to Richard and his classmates on the importance of setting and achieving your goals. Since that time Richard has made it his focus to preach those same sentiments and help students achieve their fullest potential.
Since forming Blanket Coverage, Richard Sherman and the Blanket Coverage team have made it their mission to provide school supplies for students across America. Richard has visited several elementary and high schools, speaking to the student body on making the world a better place than when they entered it.
