As much as he is a standout player for the Denver Broncos on gameday, Bradley Roby is equal parts humanitarian off the field. The third-year cornerback from Ohio State was named the NFLPA Community MVP for Week 7.
“I was really honored when I found out I won," Roby said. "I know only one guy every week can get it, and I see what guys all over the league and here in Denver are doing in the community, so it means a lot to me to receive the award.”
The Super Bowl-winning defensive back was part of a charity event held on Tuesday night to benefit the Strikes for Kids Giveaway Program, which recognizes and rewards children ages 6-13 for their athletic and academic achievement.

Roby would also go out of his way to host breast cancer survivors at the event in conjunction with the NFL’s Breast Cancer Awareness Month of October.
“I was motivated to do the event because I know we as athletes have a platform-and there’s no excuse for us to not be using that platform to better our surroundings," Roby said.
Roby joins other current, notable Broncos who have been prominent figures in the community, such as Von Miller, who take time out of their busy schedules to give back to the many fans who cheer them on Sundays.
No matter happens on the field, Roby has earned a special appreciation for going above and beyond his place in football to be a role model for his community.
