Draft Scout Chris Long News
09/19/17 - DE Chris Long of the Philadelphia Eagles will donate his first six game checks this season to fund two scholarships for students in his hometown of Charlottesville, Va., his foundation announced on Tuesday. The scholarships will provide two students with a seven-year, all-expenses-paid school program, and are meant to "promote equality through education," per the Chris Long Foundation. They will be administered by Long's alma mater, St. Anne's-Belfield School, which will collaborate with the Boys & Girls Club of Central Virginia to identify two sixth graders who will have their tuition covered through high school. Long and his wife, Megan, are making this decision in light of a series of white supremacist rallies that led to violence in the streets last month.

"It's the right move in my heart, because I want to get back to being the player I was before. I'm thankful for my role (with the Patriots) last year. But as a competitor, I'm itching to do what I do best."
