One of the biggest names I heard from in the NFL 100: Gratitude to Greats Project was a defensive icon, Alan Page. Regarded as one of the greatest defensive linemen in NFL history, Page anchored the Minnesota Vikings’ “Purple People Eaters” defense to four NFC Championships throughout the 70s and was the first defensive player in NFL history to be named Most Valuable Player. Page was also a unanimous vote to the NFL 100th Anniversary All-Time Team. Mr. Page wrote “Good luck in your fight against cancer”.
I was very honored to hear from this unanimously voted member of the NFL 100th Anniversary All-Time Team, and I took the time to donate to Page’s Scholarship Fund, helping a young girl by the name of Radhika Tandon get an opportunity at college since it was an opportunity I feel, personally, I never really got a fair chance at in the environment I was in back in the early 2000s in northwest Louisiana. These days, it is saddening me that, with the removal of TOPS here in Louisiana, more and more bright students did not get the opportunity they deserve at higher education. I applaud Mr. Page for standing up for the future of America, and I encourage Radhika to take this opportunity at a superior future to the next level.
I encourage anyone who may be able to help one of America’s youth get a scholarship to donate to the Alan Page Education Foundation at https://www.page-ed.org/donate/ .
