Riki Ellison Honored AGAIN!!!!!

The United States House of Representatives passed a resolution (sponsored by 32 U.S. Representatives, including California Congresswoman Diane Watson) earlier this month honoring former SF 49ers All-Pro linebacker Riki Ellison and his innovative “at risk” Youth Impact Program

The Youth Impact Program is for “at-risk” middle school boys living in the inner cities of our nation, leveraging their interest in football to take them off the streets for six weeks in the summer and enhance their academic performance, develop character and build long-term mentoring relationships with established and local inner city community leaders and teachers.  YIP also provides year-round mentoring and Riki is hoping to expand this program in the near future to every city in America with an NFL franchise.  The New Orleans Saints, USC & Tulane University have been strong supporters of YIP in 2008.

Congratulations Riki . . . and keep up the outstanding work!
