Earlier this month, rookie Running Back Leonard Fournette donated 700 childhood trophies and recycled them as free weights for a Jacksonville high school.
Forged from the past, to fuel the future. The 700 trophies were used to make an entire set of weights for needy high schoolers from William M. Raines High School in Jacksonville, Florida.
“I have plenty of trophies, I’m a champion,” Leonard says in the video below. “I love winning but when you do win the trophy, the big thing you wanted to win, like what’s next?”
This aligns perfectly with what Paul writes in 2 Timothy 3:16 & 17 – “All Scripture is breathed out by God and profitable for teaching, for reproof, for correction, and for training in righteousness, that the man of God may be competent, equipped for every good work.”
With these weights, Leonard has given the high school students of William M. Raines the equipment for every good work towards their body.
