Richards has been a Playmaker since his freshman year of high school when he showed up to talk to youth football Playmakers about character and serving others in the community.  Jordan has spoken to

Playmaker kids, purchased jerseys for “Jordan’s Playmakers” and seen to it that they have seen him play at Stanford and much more.

STANFORD, CA – Saturday, Sept. 3, 2010: Stanford defeated San Jose State 57-3 at Stanford Stadium.

Jordan’s signature on Playmakers extends now to recruiting Harrison Phillips, Stanford’s 6’3” 290 pound defensive tackle who has taken Jordan’s baton locally.  Phillips will soon join Jordan in the NFL.  Recruiting character athletes for mentoring younger kids is part of Playmakers “pay-it-forward” philosophy led by Richards.

Richards, Phillips and Playmaker Executive Director, Greg Roeszler are now in planning it’s 8th afterschool academy that will be in Palo Alto creating a permanent legacy of Jordan and Harrison at Stanford.  Jordan is leaving a lasting imprint on hundreds of at-risk kids through Playmakers.
