Fletcher Teaching ‘Financial Football’

Posted by Andrew Walker on September 4, 2012 – 9:45 am

London Fletcher will begin his 15th NFL season on Sunday as his Washington Redskins travel to New Orleans to take on the Saints in both teams’ season openers.

Throughout his lengthy career, Fletcher has assuredly learned a thing or two about the financial world — knowledge that the Cleveland native is giving back today (on his day off, no less).

Fletcher is on a panel that includes North Carolina Sen. Kay Hagan and State Treasurer Janey Conwell that is playing host to a “Financial Football” game at Wake Forest University in Charlotte, N.C.

Financial Football is “a fast-paced, interactive game that engages students while teaching them money management skills.”

According to its website, Hagan and Conwell are coaching a group of MBA students, who will compete by answering financial questions to “earn yardage and score touchdowns.”

The panel also includes Jason Alderman, senior director of global financial literacy at Visa.
