Mike Adams making impact near and far

In March of 2017, safety Mike Adams was part of a group of NFL players that travelled to South Africa with the goal of supporting and inspiring kids at an orphanage and a high school. “After seeing the impact it had,” Adams said, “we knew we had to do it again.” So in March of 2018, Adams and the group of players took another trip – this time to Jamaica, where they visited Granville All-Age School in St James. “We were glad to be there and learn from them,” Adams said. “We learned songs, we played soccer their way. It was a great thing to do. “I was so happy with the outcome of everything.” The crew of NFL players brought all sorts of donations with them - from signed jerseys to slippers and

Bethel High graduate C.J. Anderson gives back to Vallejo with third annual free football camp

C.J. Anderson’s pro football team recently changed. His love for his hometown of Vallejo hasn’t. Although the Bethel High graduate and Pro Bowl running back is now a Carolina Panther instead of a Denver Bronco, Anderson has always remained loyal to Vallejo. On Saturday he once again gave back to the city, hosting his Dreams Never Die Foundation’s 3rd Annual Summer Football Camp.
