Patriots safety Cody Davis has been named this week’s NFL Players Association Community MVP.

Davis is being recognized for his “Cody’s Gamers” program in conjunction with Boston Children’s Hospital. Davis donated a Nintendo Switch to the hospital for patients to use and he regularly joins up with children over Zoom to play games and engage in conversations. Davis then sends a gift basket filled with things each kid said they like during the call.

“I’m truly honored and humbled to be named the Week 3 NFLPA Community MVP” Davis said in a statement. “I strive to use the gifts and platform that God has given me to love and serve others. I hope to serve as an example that an impact can be made no matter your role or platform.”

The NFLPA will donate $10,000 to Davis’ foundation or a charity of his choice. He will join the other weekly winners in being eligible for the Alan Page Community Award at the end of the year.

  1. Donating the Switch is cool enough, ’cause anyone whose spent a significant period of time in hospital knows how boring it can be and that’s even more so for kids who want to be active and play games and stuff. Plus, you know, any hospital stay is scary enough for adults, let alone children, and anything that distracts them from the fear and the paranoia that you’re the one in a trillion or whatever case where something goes horrifically wrong is a good thing for me.

    But donating your time to play and lend them an ear and stuff? That’s going above and beyond. Respect, Cody Davis.
