Walter Payton Man of the Year: Jaguars’ Calais Campbell wins award

Jacksonville Jaguars defensive end Calais Campbell has been named the 2019 Walter Payton NFL Man of the Year honoree.

A five-time Pro Bowl player, Campbell has given back to his northeast Florida community by forming the CRC Foundation, named for his late father, Charles. The foundation has taught critical life skills to young people since 2009, and was founded alongside his mother and seven siblings.

Campbell has rewarded the youth in his community for their hard work. Over the holidays, he held shopping sprees for local children who completed extra financial literacy lessons. He also hosted 250 children at the Calais Campbell JaxPAL Youth Football STEM Camp and makes semi-weekly trips to Northwestern Middle School as part of his CRC Book Club.
