MIAMI, FL / ACCESSWIRE / January 29, 2020 / We are days away and eagerly awaiting Super Bowl LIV where the Kansas City Chiefs will battle the San Francisco 49ers to conclude the 100th season of the National Football League (NFL). This season we have witnessed incredible achievements by the leagues brightest stars. Lamar Jackson comes to mind with an outstanding sophomore season breaking Michal Vicks single season quarterback rushing record, Drew Brees becoming the all-time passing leader and Dereck Henry literally carrying the Tennessee into the playoffs.
It is easy to admire these gifted athletes as they entertain us and exhibit such precision on the field. However, if we peel back the layers and look deep inside who they are we come to find the great women in their lives that have helped these men achieve success. The mothers and wives of these athletes not only take pride being allies of their NFL sons and husbands, they also contribute to society by fighting for the rights of those abused, neglected and less fortunate.
