Braylon Edwards pulls a real life “Scott’s Tots”


At 22 college campuses across the country, there are 79 students who may not otherwise be there if not for the generosity of Braylon Edwards.

As a Cleveland Browns rookie in 2005, Edwards announced he’d give $10,000 in scholarships to 100 area eighth-graders if they could graduate high school with over a 2.5 GPA and 15 hours community service. Of the 100 who were afforded the opportunity, 79 met the criteria and have begun their first year of college. Many are attending Ohio universities, but the schools represented spread across the country and include Harvard, Cornell and Johns Hopkins. Yahoo

When I first read this article I was waiting for the part where Edwards couldn’t afford to help out 79 children with their college tuition.  But unfortunately it never happened.  Edwards went through with his promise, and actually did something extremely commendable.   Still, the whole financial crash and burn part would have really made this story a lot better.  I’m very disappointed this didn’t mirror Michael Scott’s situation.

    For CHart: LEARN TO READ, YOU’RE A MORON! 79 STUDENTS OUT OF THE ORIGINAL 100 THAT B. EDWARDS ORIGINALLY DESIGNATED. YOU’RE AN IMBECILE AND THE REASON THAT THE HUMAN RACE IS ON IT’S WAY TO NOT EXISTING ANYMORE. ARE YOU EVEN ABLE TO WIPE YOUR OWN REAR-END?
