Michael Bennett Nominated For NFL Man Of The Year Award

The Bennett Foundation

Michael Bennett’s nomination for the Walter Payton NFL Man of the Year Award was announced on Thursday, December 7. His work through The Bennett Foundation and partnerships with outside organizations is extensive, with programs serving Washington, Hawaii, Texas, and South Dakota. Whether he’s working with teens at the King County Youth Detention Facility, fundraising for Hurricane Harvey, or advocating for social justice, Michael’s ability to motivate and mobilize is truly inspiring. A humanist at heart, it’s hard not to believe he might see the greater potential in all of us.

“Your legacy has to be what you do in the community and how much you give back and how you use your platform,” Michael told reporters from Seahawks.com.
