49ers star Richard Sherman makes $7000 donation to help eradicate school’s debt

One of the best cornerbacks in the NFL, Richard Sherman is better known for his handiwork on the football field.

However, it seems he is doing some brilliant work off it too.

The 2013 Super Bowl winner is desperate to ensure there are no hungry stomachs amongst California’s youth.

So he has donated $7,491.27 to cover students' lunch debt at Cabrillo Middle School in Santa Clara.

The school’s principal Stan Garber revealed the news, with a picture of himself and Sherman back-to-back in the school’s cafeteria.

He wrote: “Richard's gesture created such good will for the 49ers that they went on to sack Aaron Roger's (sic) and the Green Bay Packers the next day on national tv by a score of 37-8.

“Go 49ers, Go Richard Sherman.”
