Josh Norman might be rough and tough on the field of play, but the guy clearly has a big heart.
The Washington Redskins cornerback donated thousands of dollars to a Catholic organization in Texas that provides aid for migrants amid widespread national criticism of Donald Trump’s administration treatment of undocumented immigrants and asylum-seekers.
On Thursday, Norman visited the Catholic Charities RGV Humanitarian Respite Center where he would go on to personally present staffers with a check for $18,000.
“Kudos to Josh Norman with the Washington Redskins for visiting the humanitarian respite center/McAllen today & contributing to our response to restore human dignity,” wrote the group’s executive director, Norma Seni Pimentel, on Twitter.
Norman, along with New Orleans Saints linebacker Demario Davis, were both present in a journey to the Rio Grande valley earlier this year, where they would personally visit multiple migrant detention centers.
“You see what’s going on and it’s sad and it’s a bit of an oppression. It really is because you’re going through, you walk through and you see those halls and the rooms and how many people are just packed on top of each other,” Norman told a local CBS News station in April.
“We don’t come at it from a political standpoint, we come at it from a right versus wrong standpoint. We’re all human beings — no matter where you come from, no matter what culture you represent, no matter what ethnicity you’re in, no matter what status,” Davis added at the time.
Good for Norman and Davis helping out where they can.
