PLAYERS: Seth Olsen
TEAMS: Indianapolis Colts
Colts guard Seth Olsen just returned from a 10 day mission to Uganda that changed some lives: ​"Between the bush and the villages, the people have no access to education about safe water. So they teach people in the villages, who in turn become trainers for the rest of the people who live there. That way, it has lasting effect." The centerpiece of the mission was drilling a new well in Alyet Village, whose residents previously had to walk five kilometers to the nearest water source. And that water carried diseases including typhoid fever, yellow fever and hepatitis, as well as causing diarrhea that was all too often fatal. "In the states, we don't usually take diarrhea that seriously, because we have access to medicine and we drink clean water," Olsen notes. "But it's one of the biggest killers of children under five in the developing world."

Bill Polian liked Robert Griffin III more then Andrew Luck?

Seattle media makes their case for Peyton Manning

Seattle hasn’t been mentioned a lot as a possible landing spot for Peyton Manning, but it probably should be.

Why would Peyton Manning want to play for the Redskins?
