Giving Back to Those in Need

"Retired players have been very good to me over the years. They have granted me interviews and helped me get in touch with their teammates. I have been able to form a bond with these players. I want to give back to them. Not all players, especially the older players, are multi-millionaires. Many struggle to pay their mounting medical bills and struggle to transition to life after football. They need help. Therefore, a portion of all proceeds from the FLA will go to help retired players in need." - FLA Founder Ken Crippen
