Current and former members of the Detroit Lions’ were honored at the NFL Alumni DET Chapter’s 38th annual charity golf event.
The outreach efforts of local NFL alumni, Lions’ affiliates, and goodwill from corporate sponsors allow for the game of football to make a vital imprint on the lives of the local youth.
While Carey was not in attendance for the event due to a mandatory team meeting Monday evening, he did have this to say about giving honor to the resilience of the NFL Alumni DET Chapter.
"“I am excited about knowing that there is honor in helping the youth reach their potential and I appreciate being recognized by men I’ve looked up to since I was introduced to the sport,” said Carey according to materials provided by the NFL Alumni Detroit. “Football does not last forever but making an impact on the community does.”"
While the advancement of fundraising is one facet of the NFL Alumni, the player development incentives are quite imperative for the league’s current and past players. I was able to catch up with two former Lions’ players, offensive tackle Lomas Brown and guard Rob Sims, and ask them about the very topic of NFL player engagement and much more.
