    Steelers LB Lamarr Woodley singlehandedly wipes out pay-to-play fees in Saginaw Michigan

    Steelers LB Lamarr Woodley singlehandedly wipes out pay-to-play fees in Saginaw Michigan
    By Cameron Smith


    Professional athletes love to say that they are doing something for the communities they came from, yet those efforts are sometimes much more talk than actual action. Steelers linebacker Lamarr Woodley backs up his community pledges with cold hard cash.

    As reported by Michigan ABC affiliate WJRT, Woodley was concerned about pay-to-play fees in his hometown of Saginaw, Michigan, so he decided to singlehandedly wipe them out. The superstar linebacker cut a check for more than $60,000 to the Saginaw Public Schools athletic department to cover the $75 fee each student was expected to pay to compete in school athletics during the 2012 season.

    I love to read about athletes doing something good as opposed to all the negative talk circulating in the media. Good job Woodley!!!

    Very classy gesture by 56. If more players/celebrities did this the world would be a better place.

    Bravo! Nicely done.

    Wouldn't it be refreshing if something like this made headline news rather than the Bad Boy athlete of the week? Yeah right. 'Bad boy' stories make better press.

    Good stuff by Woodley, that's what you love to see out of these players. Giving back to schools in their community is awesome!

    I wonder if he could afford to wipe out Harrison's fines for 2012

    Woodley has always struck me as a great guy, seems like another great example. Hope those kids use him as a role model.
    I like big hits and I cannot lie
