Chiefs RB Jackie Battle Making a Difference With Internship

Kansas City Chiefs RB Jackie Battle had a disappointing end to his 2009 season when he was placed on injured reserve. However, that setback hasn't stopped him from making a difference in the lives of some kids.

The NFL's player development department strives to help athletes not only make a difference in their communities, but continue their own education, learn more about their financial situation and develop their personal and professional lives.

Battle is taking that to heart by interning with the Positive Coaching Alliance, an organization that focuses on helping student-athletes better themselves, their teammates and the game itself. Specifically, Battle is working with the Triple-Impact Competitor Scholarship Program, which honors student-athletes that demonstrate:

  • Personal Mastery: Making oneself better
  • Leadership: Making one’s teammates better
  • Honoring the Game: Making the game better

The PCA is based in Stanford and will honor high school student-athletes.
