The holidays are upon us and we’re taking a short break from our analysis to report on a feel good story.
Titans rookie defensive linemen Larrell Murchison is spreading holiday cheer and stepping up to help those in need.
The North Carolina native and his family are providing new winter coats to children of single-parent households within his hometown community of Elizabethtown. The children will also receive new toys and presents from Murchison to help brighten their holiday season.
As part of his efforts to give back, Murchison is also surprising the senior citizens at Whites Creek Missionary Baptist Church with holiday gift bags.
“Growing up in the small tight-knit community of Elizabethtown, I understand the importance of acknowledging those who helped mold me into the man I am today,” says Murchison.
More significantly, he recognizes the opportunity he has created for others to follow in his footsteps and accomplish their dreams.
The Titans selected Murchison with the 174th selection in the 2020 NFL Draft. Murchison spent two years at NC State and was quite productive, wrapping up his career there with 80 tackles (20 for loss) and 11 sacks. Murchison was often praised for his energy and character.
Just remember what general manager Jon Robinson had to say after selecting Murchison.
Robinson said at the conclusion of Day 2, Murchison was the last prospect he looked at before closing his computer for the night. “We weathered 67 picks there with him,” Robinson said, “and we were fortunate enough to get him.”
It’s great to see Murchison already using his platform to better his community.
The Murchison family would like to thank Leinwand’s of Elizabethtown for being a fantastic partner in this mission.
Happy Holidays to all!
