Chiefs GM Pioli Comments on Brian Waters as a Man of the Year Finalist

New, comments

Somehow I missed this last night when it was announced that Kansas City Chiefs G Brian Waters was a Walter Payton NFL Man of the Year Award finalist.

In the Chiefs press release, GM Scott Pioli commented on Waters' well deserved recognition.

"Brian’s track record of community service and his career-long commitment to helping others off the field make him a very deserving candidate for the Walter Payton NFL Man of the Year Award," General Manager Scott Pioli said. "As an organization, we take great pride in the community outreach efforts of all members of the Chiefs family, and Brian’s generosity has helped improve the lives of thousands of young people and their families in Kansas City."

And Waters commented also.

"It’s an honor to serve the NFL and the Chiefs by assisting those both in Kansas City and my home state of Texas," noted Waters. "In reality, what I’ve been able to give back to these communities represents only a small percentage of what they have done for me and my family. My goal is to not only do my part, but also to encourage others to do the same in their communities."

We may not have a horse in the big race, but there's still reason to watch the Super Bowl. The winner will be announced prior to kickoff.
