Chiefs OG Laurant Duvernay-Tradif Wins a Major Humanitarian Award

Here's an article on the award. The catch phrase seems to be, "be bigger than your sport."

As a professional athlete, my responsibility has been to be the best football player that I can be when I step onto the field. But at the end of the day, for me, what matters most is to be able to use that platform to promote something bigger than just our sport. When I decided to opt out and return to the front lines, I wanted to show the next generation of student-athletes that it's possible to be bigger than your sport. It's important to showcase the impact that education can have on your career and life. It's important to showcase that balance is necessary. That you are more than your sport and you are capable of making an impact beyond the field or court.

In 2016, I started the LDT Foundation. The purpose was to promote balance between sports, education and arts. The goal is to help students find their passions and pursue those passions at the highest level while still being well-rounded.

Duvernay-Tardif will receive an additional $100,000 to the charity of his choice, which could include the LDT Foundation.
