A4I: Moorman returns to Roswell Park

BUFFALO, NY (WIVB.com) – Punter Brian Moorman got his old job and number back on Sunday, after being cut by the Buffalo Bills almost exactly a year ago. His return to Buffalo is not only meaningful to the Buffalo Bills football team, it is important to many people involved or affected by pediatric cancer.

Moorman created the P.U.N.T Foundation in 2004. P.U.N.T stands for Perseverance, Understanding, Need and Triumph. The Foundation serves families affected by pediatric cancer through a variety of initiatives.  However, Brian does much more than donate his money, he donates his time. When in Buffalo, he visits pediatric cancer patients on a weekly basis.

“Sometimes you just feel helpless and you know if you could do something cool like meet a Bills player just for ten minutes, doing something cool kind of takes your mind off it,” cancer patient Caleb Edgecomb explained.

Brian is a two-time All-Pro player and a two-time Pro-Bowler. The 37-year-old’s success in life, in his opinion, is more defined by the number of people he has positively impacted as opposed to the numbers in a football stat box.

“To me it is not about what I accomplish in my football career or anything like that. It is just use what you got, your God given talents to make good.”
