However you feel about Randy Foye's play this year, there's no denying that he's a great, great guy who does a lot of outstanding work in the community. He runs a foundation, aptly named the Randy Foye Foundation, which is devoted to giving back in Foye's hometown of Newark. Programs include a mentoring program, a youth basketball camp, a food bank and a project to rebuild a local gym.
Earlier this week, Foye got some well-deserved recognition, winning the New Jersey Governors Jefferson Award in the category of Service to Youth. The state gives out 18 awards each year to a variety of participants who, according to their site, "through volunteer service, do extraordinary things for other people, their community, their nation, or the environment."
Congratulations to Randy on this honor!
