In the News: some BIG WIN Philanthropy!

"Ex-NFL Player Who Made $25 Million Quit Football At Age 29 To Become A Farmer


In 2009 Jason Brown signed a five-year, $37.5-million contract with the St. Louis Rams that made him the highest-paid center in the NFL.

Five years later, after earning more than $25 million of that contract, Brown is a farmer who's helping to feed the hungry.


At age 29, he still had plenty of NFL years ahead of him.......But he walked away from the game. The NFL world was surprised, and ESPN ran a story with the headline, "The Curious Case Of Jason Brown."

"My agent, he told me, 'You're making the biggest mistake of your life,'" Brown told CBS. "And I looked right back at him and I said, 'No I am not.'"


Brown is doing this to help the less fortunate. He grows sweet potatoes and other vegetables, and donates his harvest to food pantries.


"When you see them pop up out of the ground, man it's the most beautiful thing you could ever see," he said of harvesting the sweet potatoes.


Brown went to school at the University of North Carolina. He had no idea how to farm back in 2012. He learned on YouTube."------

Wasn't he cut and didn't really have an option of staying in the NFL?

Still really cool of him to donate food to the needy.

Mmmm... sweet potatoes.

Good move avoiding all the brain damage too.
