It’s always thrilling to cheer for Titans who are leaders on the field, but it’s even more special when our cheers are directed toward a player who leads off the field as well. For Titans fans, we are blessed to have a man on the team worthy of cheering ourselves hoarse for: Wesley Woodyard. His on-field prowess speaks for itself. A captain in all 10 of his seasons, Wesley last year led the Titans in stops and is closing in on 900 career tackles.
However, it is his leadership off the field that truly sets him apart. Wesley’s generosity and commitment to the well-being of others led him to help launch 16 Ways, a nonprofit organization dedicated to the success of our nation's youth through programs in academics and athletics in places such as LaGrange, Georgia; Denver, Colorado; and Nashville, Tennessee. For his all-around leadership, Wesley was named as a finalist for the Walter Payton Man of Year, a prestigious NFL award that recognizes players who bring their A game not just to football but to their civic and professional responsibilities, too. Wesley is a true leader, and his nomination for the Walter Payton Man of the Year Award is an honor well-deserved.
