Brian Waters And The Man Of The Year Award Glad To Be Part Of The Chiefs

New, comments

Most players have articles written about their style of play on the field, the big catch they made last week or how they stay in shape during the offseason.

Brian Waters has full articles on his off-the-field endeavors. Jimmie Tramel of the Tulsa World has a nice rundown on Waters and the idea of paying it forward.

Waters said he is blessed to be with an organization like the Chiefs that takes pride in community service. He is the fifth Chief to be the NFL's Man of the Year and the second to be an Iba recipient, joining former offensive line mate Will Shields.

"It was great to have a role model like Will Shields," Waters said, adding that Shields did things on a grand scale.

The Chiefs were great in the '90s on the field and dominated in community service. Shields won the NFL Man of the Year Award in 1993. The Chiefs have been pretty awful on the field the last three years and, once again, still dominate in community service.

Some things never change and, as a resident of Kansas City, that's good to hear.
