Client Terrance Copper gives back to the high school that laid the groundwork for his NFL career.
This Thanksgiving Washington High School has a little bit more to be thankful for as it received a sizeable donation for its former star receiver Terrance Copper. Copper, an eight-year NFL veteran and current member of the Kansas City Chiefs, has teamed up with the NFL on a grant program that at the end of the day gives both Washington High School and the Washington Youth Football League $10,000 each to help upgrade its athletic equipment. The program is designed to help high schools and youth programs across the country and allows a player to donate a maximum of $5,000 towards those programs and is in turn matched by the NFL. As he does on the playing field every Sunday, Copper went all out and donated the max to both WHS and the WYFL. “Washington is where I grew up at, I lived in Washington all my life and I still got family in my hometown and I felt like it was something that I wanted to do for the kids,” Copper said. “It was an opportunity to give back to them.”
