It’s hard to figure out Seahawks cornerback Richard Sherman. Highly talented as a player, he comes off at times as salty and abrasive. He can unnecessarily boastful, prideful, and immodest.
But he’s also using his platform and influence for the good of others.
According to the team’s official website, Sherman has launched “Blanket Coverage — The Richard Sherman Family Foundation.” The goal of the charity will be to “channel its resources to ensure that as many children as possible are provided with proper school supplies and adequate clothing.”
We recently noticed that Sherman apparently has matured, choosing the high road over picking fights. He’s definitely taking the high road with the launching of his charity, and we respect him for that.
