Since there are still a few weeks left until OTAs and training camp officially kick off, the Tampa Bay Buccaneers have a bit more time to take part in their own private workouts, training sessions, events across the community and find ways to make an impact off the field. Tampa Bay’s star wide receiver Mike Evans was the latest to do just that.
According to Travis Brown of The Eagle, Evans recently rewarded a high school student a scholarship worth $2,000 at his celebrity basketball game at College Station High School during halftime.
“On Friday, former Texas A&M Aggie turned Tampa Bay Buccaneer wide receiver Mike Evans helped Greene realize her dreams,” Brown wrote. “Greene was one of five local high school seniors that received a $2,000 scholarship from the Mike Evans Foundation at the halftime of his celebrity basketball game at College Station High School.”
In Brown’s feature, he added that Greene plans to use her scholarship to earn a social work degree from TCU and that she could not be any more thrilled about being awarded a scholarship from Evans’ foundation which will help her attend college and work towards receiving her degree.
“Twenty-five students submitted essays on why the scholarship will help them to attend college and how they will use the opportunity to give back to their community,” Brown wrote. “Greene said the financial aid helped her make the decision to choose her dream school — TCU and its high price tag — in order to earn a social work degree, which she will use to give back to minority groups in her community.”
Evans just re-signed an incredibly hefty contract which will ensure he remains a Buc for several years. Despite all of his success on the field, the 24-year-old receiver has still always managed to make his foundation and giving back to the community a top priority in his life.
