A former football star-turned businessman will be honored next week for his work with Hoosier children. Rosevelt Colvin, who played at Broad Ripple High School in Indianapolis and Purdue University before a 10-year NFL career, will receive the 2015 Rev. Charles Williams Award for Service to Youth at the September 10 Indiana Sports Corp Pathfinder Awards Dinner.
The ceremony will also include celebration of this year’s Pathfinder Award winner, former Secretary of State Condoleezza Rice.
Colvin won two Super Bowls with the New England Patriots and also played several seasons with the Chicago Bears. When his career was complete, he purchased a UPS Store franchise in Indianapolis, which he has run for a decade. Colvin also established the All-Pro Flag Football League in the city and coaches youth football and basketball teams. He serves as a trainer and mentor for young athletes preparing for the NFL Combine and draft at St. Vincent Sports Performance.
The 28th edition of the Pathfinder Awards will be held at the Indiana Roof Ballroom.
