Each month during the 2013 season, the Atlanta Falcons will select a player who has participated in community activities, shown a commitment to giving back to the community and/or went above and beyond on a particular visit. The Atlanta Falcons Community All-Star can be any player on the Falcons roster.
The Atlanta Falcons Community All-Star for the month of November is Matt Bryant. Bryant participated in numerous community activities throughout the month. He spoke to teachers who are a part of the NFL Fuel Up to Play 60 program at a conference at the Hilton Hotel in Marietta. Bryant encouraged the teachers to stay committed to the program. He signed autographs and took pictures with the attendees as well. On a visit at Publix in Hoschton, he signed autographs and took pictures with fans.
Bryant also purchased several tickets and t-shirts for the Sunday, Nov. 10 home game against the Seattle Seahawks for marines who will be volunteering throughout the holidays for the local Toys for Tots campaign.
On Monday, Dec. 16, each of the Community All-Star Winners will be recognized at the annual Atlanta Falcons Community Honors Dinner and one player will be named the 2013 Atlanta Falcons Walter Payton Man of the Year.
