Wide receiver Anquan Boldin receives service award from NFLPA

By The Associated Press

ORLANDO, Fla. -- San Francisco wide receiver Anquan Boldin's foundation is the recipient of a $100,000 grant from the players union for winning the Byron "Whizzer" White Award.

The award is given to the player who serves his team, community and country in the spirit of Byron Raymond "Whizzer" White, the late Supreme Court justice the NFL Players Association calls "a scholar, athlete, patriot, humanitarian and public servant -- the personification of the ideal to which professional football players aspire."

An 11-year veteran and four-time Pro Bowl pick with Arizona, Baltimore and San Francisco, Boldin's Q81 Foundation mission is to expand the educational and life opportunities of underprivileged youth.

The foundation begins its 10th year in April and has conducted charitable activities in Phoenix, Baltimore, South Florida and most recently in San Francisco.
