This season, Alfred Morris made a name for himself by serving up the second most rushing yards in the NFL. Next Thursday, the Redskins’ running back will be serving up lemonade at the Super Bowl.
Morris will join six students from Junior Achievement of Greater New Orleans in serving patrons lemonade from a pop up stand at the media center, giving the youngsters an opportunity to learn about operating a small business. Green Bay’s Donald Driver will also participate.
The program is sponsored by FedEx, which will make two $25,000 donations to Junior Achievement in the names of the 2012 FedEx Ground and Air players of the year. Morris is a nominee for ground player of the year.
Junior Achievement is a non-profit organization focused on teaching work readiness, entrepreneurship and financial literacy for students in kindergarten-12th grade.
