Education Published on : 9/26/2014
Hall of Fame tight end Charlie Sanders recently participated in the Hall of Fame's Youth/Education program "Heart of a Hall of Famer" series.

The Lions great discussed the importance of character on and off the football field during a video conference with students across the country.

Sanders recently served as a panelist on the Pro Football Hall of Fame roundtable discussing the documentary "Forgotten Four: The Integration of Pro Football.”

The program provides students the opportunity to learn first-hand what it took beyond athletic ability for legendary Heroes of the Game to achieve success on and off the football field with a focus on positive character qualities. The series aligns with the Hall of Fame’s Mission Statement to Honor the Heroes of the Game, Preserve its History, Promote its Values and Celebrate Excellence EVERYWHERE.
