CFP Foundation Recruits Former NFLers For PSA On The Value Of Teachers

The CFP Foundation "wants to spread the word about the crucial value of teachers," and recently recruited former NFLers Troy Aikman, Tim Brown, Russell Maryland and Darren Woodson to be "featured in public service announcements" regarding the cause, according to Cheryl Hall of the DALLAS MORNING NEWS. Beginning at the end of this month, the foursome will be "sharing their stories of teachers who changed their lives along with giving lessons on typing, English and discipline." The 30-second spots will kickoff the "fourth season of Extra Yard for Teachers." The foundation was "founded three years ago with the advent" of the CFP. Foundation Exec Dir Britton Banowsky said, "We have a 12-year commitment from the networks (to broadcast the tournament) so we felt we had a lot of opportunity to do some good. We felt we could leverage the College Football Playoff platform along with all of college football to support teachers” (DALLAS MORNING NEWS, 9/23).
