Bucs to Wear Custom Cleats for Charity

Posted Nov 28, 2016

Jameis Winston, Kwon Alexander and Lavonte David are among nearly a dozen Bucs who will be wearing custom cleats for charity this weekend.

In Week 13, as part of the NFL’s My Cause, My Cleats campaign, several Buccaneers players will be wearing custom cleats to support a handful of different charities. Across the league, players are wearing specially designed cleats to support a cause of their choice. Each players’ cleats will display positive, inspiring and unifying messages.

Among those players wearing custom cleats will be Jameis Winston and Kwon Alexander.

Winston will be supporting Juvenile Diabetes Research Foundation while Alexander’s cleats will reflect an anti-gun violence message. Both causes are close to their hearts; Winston’s grandmother is affected by diabetes and Alexander lost his younger brother to gun violence a year ago.

“I’m supporting Stop the Violence because, in the city I’m from, gun violence is a real issue,” Alexander said. “A lot of people are getting hurt from the unnecessarily violence. I want to stop that in my city and around the world. We want everybody to come together as a family.”

Lavonte David, Donovan Smith, Josh Robinson, Alterraun Verner, Gerald McCoy, Andrew DePaola, Roberto Aguayo, Bryan Anger and Mike Glennon will be participating. David will be supporting the Big Brothers and Big Sisters while Smith’s cleats will aim to raise awareness for children with intellectual disabilities.

Robinson’s cleats will have a message for brain cancer while Glennon’s will support the Moffitt Cancer Center. Verner’s cleats will support Athletes for Charity.

Week 13 will be the only week that players will be wearing their custom cleats, to be sure to keep an eye on the newly-designed cleats the Buccaneers will be wearing.
