Corey Peters book club

Professional athletes and teams are doing their best to help their local communities during the ongoing COVID-19 pandemic.

From cash donations to spending time handing out food to the needy, it has made a major difference.

Arizona Cardinals defensive lineman Corey Peters is going about it a different way. He decided to set up a virtual book club to provide an educational outlet for Arizona high school students while schools remain closed. It’s called “Corey Peters Playbook,” and it’s absolutely awesome.

Per the link in the tweet, Peters will host the virtual book club on Zoom. He’ll discuss with students specific books of the NFL player’s choosing under the guise of the Peters Education Enrichment Project.

Talk about an original idea.

Peters, 31, has been with the Cardinals since 2015. The Kentucky product originally entered the NFL as a third-round pick of the Falcons in 2010. He’s seen as a leader within the locker room and the broader Arizona community.

We now know why.
