community effort. this award, though, has been about players who are great on the football field but live with their hearts off of it. they made their time in the nfl about more than just the stats they put out on the field. by how they lived off of it. i'm humbled, i'm honored, to stand up here and represent the outstanding class of 2021 nominees in all of the previous winners. [ applause ] give them a round of applause. come on. [ applause ] but i'm here to tell you, we have more work to do. social media has been great for bringing awareness to all our causes. but that's not enough. we need more action. whether we choose to acknowledge it or not, this is the truth -- the people who come to see us play, who watch our game on tv, who buy our jerseys, who follow you on social media, they're why our game exists. that's why we have a field to play on. we're financially supported and provided the opportunity to play a kids game because of the support we receive from communities across this country. and across the world. [ applause ]
but how are we supporting back? in what ways are we paying it forward, to the same communities we all grew up in, we all came from, or maybe the people we've seen struggling along the way we got to where we are. it can be as simple as making a kid smile, by walking in school and telling you love them and believe in them, and they can achieve anything they want. or maybe it's stepping up financially and saying i'm going to ensure every child has the same opportunity and education, regardless of what the zip code is or what state they live in. or maybe it's using your platform to make sure local government and officials are always creating programs and funding that have youth having an equal playing field and the ability to chase every dream they ever have. [ applause ] it's called an investment. you can apply those three things to any charity or calls you have a passion for.
you can invest your time. you can invest your finances. or you can invest your voice. doesn't matter which. we just have to keep investing in each other. let your heart lead you, all the way. i have had so many amazing experiences serving the community. watching that video just really brought tears to my eyes and warmed my heart. watching people enjoy life and remembering what that was like. going on school visits, poviding hospital visits, programs for military. or going to local food banks and helping out with homeless shelters. all those have been amazing. one put it together for me. it happened on the football field. in our game against the detroit lions, i had a young player from the lions run up to me as soon as the final horn went off. and i saw him sprinting over. i didn't know what was going on, like we had known each other forever. i couldn't place him. it made me so nervous. had i played long enough that a coach's son or a player's son is
playing against me? he stopped that. he said, hey, man. you're not going to remember me. i'm derek barnes. you spent time with me when you were a young player in cincinnati at the boys and girls club and it meant the world to me. you used to sit with me and talk to me about life. and i was just a little kid. i wanted you to know how much it meant to me. i said, man. he goes, you know what? the main thing i want to say, i made it. i made it to the nfl, big whit.
wow. [ cheers and applause ] i was floored with how special that was. i don't tell that story to be anything special. i hope you don't see that video and think there's anything special with me. on that tuesday off day, whenever guy in this room knows i would rather be at home, i made an investment in him. and i didn't even know it. i think that's a great lesson for all of us. none of us know when the moment's going to present itself. the key is to always be available when it does. [ cheers and applause ] so, keep investing. lead with your heart. and i can't wait to watch the legacy continue. remember this -- it's a blessing and not a burden to carry on this nfl legacy. thank you so much. [ cheers and applause ] >> thank you, everybody. that's our show. congratulations to all our winners. thank you, andrew. have a good night. enjoy the game. [ cheers and applause ] ♪
