The Pittsburgh Steelers’ Edmunds brothers did their part to help their community during the coronavirus pandemic.

The Edmunds family is a special family when it pertains to the National Football League. The three brothers (Terrell Edmunds, Trey Edmunds and Tremain Edmunds) are just the second family of three to have all siblings play professionally in the NFL, the other being the Watt brothers (T.J. Watt, Derek Watt, J.J. Watt). These three brothers, who of which play for the Pittsburgh Steelers, take the bond of brotherhood in a football locker room to a new level.

During these cautious times with the coronavirus (COVID-19) running rampant across the country, some have decided to stay in and protect themselves. But there are others who elect to go out and help their communities, taking on the risk which accompanies such a decision.

For the Edmunds brothers, they were the latter in the aforementioned scenario. Just this week they were out in full force helping to hand out lunches to those in need in Danville, VA.

For some, these professional athletes turning 500 meals into nearly 1,000 isn’t very noteworthy, but for me this speaks volumes about their overall character. As stated earlier, some are electing to stay inside and shelter in place for the foreseeable future. People like the Edmunds are helping as best they can, all while putting themselves in risk of potentially contracting the virus which has become a global pandemic.

Yes, there are still good people in the world. Doctors, nurses, healthcare providers and daycare providers are just a few of those who are helping in these difficult times. What the Edmunds brothers did might not seem like much, but at least it is something. It is good to see members of the NFL, and the Pittsburgh Steelers, doing their best in the community to make a difference.
