Marshawn Lynch quietly retired from the NFL in probably the most unheralded way for such a player that played with so much power and emotion.  A simple picture of his cleats draped over a telephone line sent out on social media in the middle of Super Bowl 50 signifying that he was hanging up his cleats allowed Lynch to stay in the sunset, instead of walk of into it.


Perhaps one of the most misunderstood players to ever come through the NFL, you just might be surprised as to what Lynch is up to.

The former Seattle Seahawks running back has been spending a lot of time out of the country, but his love and charity for community is still evident.

He was previously spotted in Egypt riding camels, rapping and dunking on schoolkids, but now the enigmatic Lynch is in Haiti building houses.

According to www.seahawks.com, the players flew to Haiti to help rebuild an elementary school, host a mobile medical clinic and a football camp, with the help of international charity organization, Free the Children.

On January 12, 2010, a devastating earthquake with the magnitude of 7.0 struck Haiti killing more than 160,000 people and displacing close to 1.5 million people.  More than six years later, the country has still not recovered as scars of the tragedy still remain in Port-au-Prince and other parts of the country.

I applaud Marshawn Lynch, Cliff Avril and Stephen Tulloch for continuing to help the people of Haiti rebuild and attempt to restore normalcy to their lives.  Just like the natives of New Orleans who suffered through Hurricane Katrina, the storm is gone, but the people have long been forgotten about by mainstream media.
