Chiefs players give back to fans

  Print article

KANSAS CITY, Mo. – Chiefs coach Andy Reid virtually makes it a point after every game to mention fan support, either the home crowd or what he sees on the road.

The team under the Reid has always been thankful for the support and an opportunity for the players to give back to a loyal fan base has arrived.

WorkToWin.ShirtAfter discussing ideas with teammates in the past week, a concept came to fruition, as announced by Chiefs quarterback Chase Daniel during Friday’s locker room media session.

“We wanted to do something to give back to the fans, so what we’ve decided to do is make a 2013 Chiefs playoffs shirt by the players for the fans,” Daniel said. “The mantra, the slogan for the shirt is going to be ‘Work To Win.’

Daniel said coach Andy Reid introduced the slogan to the team the first day of training camp and the team has lived it throughout the season.

It only seemed fitting to share the slogan on a t-shirt with fans.

“This is something that is really about a relationship between the players of this team and the community,” Daniel said. “And one of our main slogans here with the Chiefs is ‘Unite the Community,’ so this is how I feel we really can do it.”

The cost of the shirt is $10 and Daniel said all proceeds from sales of the shirt will go local charities, including charitable organizations players are affiliated with.

Three charities Daniel mentioned by name are the Children’s Center for Visually Impaired, the Children’s Place and the Make A Wish Foundation.
