At the Virginia Pro Day, I am 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 Virginia Pro Day to support Uplifting Athletes and its mission to inspire the Rare Disease Community with hope through the power of sport.

During my time as a student-athlete at Virginia and Towson I realized the platform athletes have to make a difference. It’s very important to me to make the most of that opportunity and turn it into something positive. That is why I hope you will help me make a positive impact on the 30 million Americans affected by rare diseases by supporting my campaign!

Fans and supporters can pledge for each bench press rep I perform (my goal is 18) at the Virginia Pro Day on March 24.

Please join my team by making a pledge today!
