Jahri Evans is clearly one of the best players in the NFL. Evans, a Frankford High product, is a six-time Pro Bowler with the New Orleans. The Saints offensive guard knows the importance of making a difference with young people in the community.
Placing Evans above Colston on this list wasn’t easy. Both have been so vital to the franchise’s transformation starting in their rookie seasons. But you have to top the list when you’re the best player in the league at your position for several years. Evans is a six-time Pro Bowler and named a first-team All-Pro four times.
The purpose of the Jahri Evans Foudation is to help student athletes further their education and athletic career by improving and developing their athletic capabilities.
