A few weeks ago, I had the opportunity to sit down and interview Joe Haden, a cornerback who plays for the Cleveland Browns. Haden was in Newport Beach, California, to attend a charity event hosted by the Foundation for the Undefeated to raise money for the Special Olympics. The Undefeated Foundation funds organizations that work to help the “underdog” and was established by NFL alumnus Paul Salata in 1976 to celebrate the last player to be selected in the NFL Draft, also known as Mr. Irrelevant.
Haden attended the event to lend his support to the Foundation and the Special Olympics. Both causes are close to his heart. He grew up with a brother with special needs and Joe and his family always included his brother in their love of sports.
