An Interview with Chad Pennington's Foundation




Today I spent time with Jennifer Correa, Executive Director of Chad Pennington's 1st and 10 Foundation, to learn how Chad is using his stardom to help other people.

Jennifer explained that Chad and his wife Robin formed this foundation in 2003 with the mission to build stronger communities by funding programs and institutions that seek to improve the quality of life throughout West Virginia, Tennessee and the New York Metropolitan area. They assist programs like Big Brother Big Sister, Boys & Girls Club and Starlight Starbright Foundation with the money they raise. This past year they donated over $200,000.

What was really nice to hear while talking with Jennifer that in an NFL off season where people like Pac-Man Jones and Chris Henry are getting dished big suspensions for their off the field high jinx, Chad Pennington is quietly putting his superstar status to good work. Two weeks ago at his celebrity bowling event, Chad and Robin's foundation raised over $150,000 in one day.

Jennifer proudly highlighted that every dollar that gets donated to the foundation goes right back into the community. Chad and Robin pay all other expenses out of their own pocket from air fare's and phone bills to Jennifer's salary. This alone separates Chad's foundation from many other charities who automatically take a percentage of every dollar to pay for administrative costs.

In attendance at their recent bowling event were former Jets quarterbacks Boomer Esiason, Ken O'Brien and Niel O'Donnell. Former Marshal University teammates showed up as well including Jonathan Goddard, Troy Brown and Randy Moss.

I was actually pleasantly surprised to hear Randy Moss was getting in on the action with all the bad press he's gotten over the years. Jennifer, who also went to college with Chad and Robin and also Randy, stated that much of Randy's bad rap is unjustified. In fact Randy and Chad have remained good friends since their Marshall days. These two former teammates will actually be division rivals this year for the first time with Randy's recent trade to the New England Patriots.

Anyone interested in donating or wanting more information can simply email Jennifer at director@1stand10foundation.com. Or check them out on the web at www.1stand10foundation.com.


At the end of our interview, I had to ask Jennifer if Chad is really as nice as he seems on T.V. Without hesitating, she confidently said, "Yes, he really is."

Good job, Unruler.

Just to point out one thing though, 'hijinx' is spelled like that.

I wish Chad's wife said, "Actually, he's a bastard. He torched our cat just this morning."

Just kidding. I think Randy Moss has gotten a bad rap too. You never hear about him around firearms, strippers, Vegas, gangsters, etc. He's a country boy and doesn't need to be adored and worshipped like some of these other guys. I think Randy Moss is more of a quiet person off the field. In the heat opf battle he has done some things and said some things that weren't very smart, but that's because his competitiveness clouded his judgement. I would welcome him on my team any day.

Unruly Jets Fan: said...

Yes, and to clarify, Jennifer is not his wife, she is the director of the foundation and works with Chad and their wife. She actually worked in the athletic department at Marshal and that is how she became freinds with Chad and his wife. She knew Randy from back in college and gave the impression that Randy does indeed get a bad wrap.

Unfortanely for us Jet fans, that is not a good thing to hear as we play him twice this year.

Bundgaard said...

Nice post Unruly!

Chad is a class guy and I hope to see him under center for the Jets in years to come.

I agree that Moss isn't in the same category of jerks like Pacman Jones, Chris Henry, Tank Johnson etc.
...I can't help to hope that he causes some havoc in that Patriots lockerroom though.

Unruly Jets Fan: said...

Thanks Bundgaard! I am hoping he breaks them apart too, only for selfish reasons though.

For everyone else, Bundgaard hosts a Jets Blog is Dutch. His link is on our site. His site is pretty pimpolicious, however, unless you can read Dutch you are a little in the dark. But he always includes pictures and the player names are in English so you can get the jist. Check him out!

Ed in Westchester said...

Nice job. I like reading about players doing good things off the field.
As opposed to fucktards like Pac Man et al.

Career totals in what? When I click on your name your profile comes up and you ask if anyone really gives a fuck who you are.

What is that web address all about?

fakenuts said...

No dude, that web address is my baseball team's website, if you go on that address (scorebook/motownpats) then click on my name to see my stats. But down the gravity dude! ha ha kidding

Unruly Jets Fan: said...

Thanks Eddie for the compliment! More interviews to follow.

Fakehead, you can be the director of my Foundation. It is called "The Fakehead Foundation for People with Fake Heads"

Bundgaard said...

yeah well, Dutch or Danish - who gives a damn ;-)

Unruly Jets Fan: said...

Sorry Bundgaard...I know their is a difference between the Dutch and the Danish. Sorry for that faux paux.
