Salute: A Man Who Keeps His Word

Former Michigan star Braylon Edwards honors promise he made to 8th-graders in 2005

Read the article

As some may know, I am huge fan of the University of Michigan Wolverines.

Former player Braylon Edwards did the University, and all men, proud by standing by a promise he made in 2005.

That year he told a 100 8th graders that he would give them each $10,000 for college if they maintained a 2.5 grade point average, did 15 hours of community service, and remained exemplary students.

He is now keeping that promise to the 79 kids that met the criteria, even though it means it will cost this years salary.

Salute.
