Kevin Mawae is considered to be one of the greatest centers to play in the NFL. Now, he is able to add another title to his name.

Mawae has traveled since he was a kid because of his father being in the army.

From Leesville to Baton Rouge, from Baton Rouge to the NFL, and from the NFL to Canton.

"The game of football taught me accountability, discipline, sacrifice, and selflessness,” Mawae said.

“The journey that started 40 years ago on a European continent, took me to the great south, the northern corners of this great country, and parts in between, finally ends.”
