Braylon Edwards gives students $10,000 for college

From the life imitating art files, San Francisco 49er football player Braylon Edwards made a promise in 2005 to 100 students that if they graduated from high school with a 2.5 GPA and 15 hours of community service, he would give them $10,000 for college.

Unlike Michael Scott from The Office Season 6 episode Scott’s Tots, Braylon made good on his promise (and then some!) and granted the money to 79 students who met the requirements. They have started their first year of college.

What you gonna do, what you gonna do, make our dreams come true…
