Maybe this should be a post-career and/or retirement award which keeps ex-players connected to community and the league. Unless, like Alex, you are injured a lot the focus needs to be on helping the team win. Let the girl friend do the bulk of the charity work while playing through the grind of a season. Great to recognize community contributions but these guys already have their plate full IMO. Perhaps you get recognition at the end of your career or in retirement if you choose to take on that role. Just my 2 cents worth.
