Las Vegas Raiders defensive end Maxx Crosby was relentless on the field. He recently showed he doesn’t stop when there aren’t games to be played.
The Raiders drafted Crosby in the fourth round of the 2019 NFL Draft. He soon would display the kind of impact he could have on the field even though he didn’t start right out of the gate. All in all, he finished last year with 10 sacks, four forced fumbles, 45 pressures and 29 stops. Furthermore, he was on the run for Defensive Rookie of the Year accolades at one point last season.
His Impact Doesn’t Stop off the Field
In the midst of the offseason, Crosby hasn’t stopped. The difference is that his impact is off the field. Via the team’s official website, the defensive end donated meals to health care workers in partnership with Sunrise Children’s Hospital in Las Vegas, and Baylor Scott & White Emergency Hospital in Colleyville, Texas.
Last week our day and night shift teams received a special meal donation from Maxx Crosby @Raiders defensive end! @CrosbyMaxx Thank you for the delicious food to keep our team fueled as they work the frontlines! 🖤 #CareLikeFamily #VegasStrong pic.twitter.com/Rof0VfjKO2— Sunrise Children's Hospital (@SunriseHosp) May 5, 2020

Crosby would later post another video on Instagram:

Hey Y’all! As you know COVID-19 has turned our world upside down. I want to give a huge standing ovation for all the frontline workers at SunriseChildrenHospital in Las Vegas and Baylor Scott & White emergency hospital in My Hometown of Colleyville, TX. The least I could do was provide meals for the morning and night shifts at these two great hospitals for all the workers putting their health and lives at risk for the greater good. Your hard work and dedication to our communities doesn’t go unnoticed. You are the true hero’s of my hometown Colleyville, TX & new home in Las Vegas,NV. Thanks Palermo’s Pizza, Boston pizza & Palios pizza for helping me feed our true hero’s! Together we are stronger! @sunrisechildrenshospitallv @bswhealth
Crosby is just the latest Raiders players to help the community during the Covid-19 pandemic. Clelin Ferrell donated $10,000 to the Eviction Diversion Program back in his hometown. Jalen Richard also funded gas cards for volunteers in Louisiana while a pair of cornerbacks provided meals to emergency responders.
Off and on the field, the Raiders and their players continue having a positive impact.
