Eric Kendricks was drafted by the Minnesota Vikings to play middle linebacker in 2015, and is now entering his 7th season in the NFL. Kendricks is widely considered one of the best linebackers in the NFL, with First-Team All-Pro and Pro Bowl selections.
Kendricks was the Minnesota Vikings Nominee for the Walter Payton Man of the Year award in 2020. The WPMOY award honors a player’s volunteer and charity work, and well as excellence off the field. As a key member of the Vikings Social Justice Committee, Kendricks awarded All Square’s Fellow & Fellow Alumn Fund for $250,000 as part of $1 million gifted by the committee. Kendricks continues to support All Square and their efforts to support formerly incarcerated individuals and their efforts to rejoin society.
“I support All Square because they combat recidivism. It’s an awesome organization and I’m happy to help where I can” – Eric Kendricks
