One of the things about professional athletes that doesn’t get talked about is how they give back to their communities. Whether they do it through established organizations or they create their own foundations, just about every professional athlete — and many of the college athletes — give to their communities.

Hector Santiago, Jr. is one of those players. I had a chance to talk to him about his efforts for his communities in California and his home in Northern New Jersey. The Video is below.
