In addition to his involvement, Saffold adopts families during the Holiday season and most recently hosted a child in foster care at a practice and helped to create a memorable experience. Saffold also participated in Pros vs. GI Joes where he and some of his teammates had the opportunity to interact with troops overseas and play video games against them. "I think my support of the military is based off of pure appreciation," said Saffold. "The freedoms that we have today were earned by others that gave their lives for us. I really appreciate the things that they've done. If I can be a distraction from the hard days our service men and women face, then I'm happy. During the Pros vs. GI Joes event, our opponents were up at 3am. I'm just hoping my teammates and I were able to ease their minds, because they have one of the most stressful jobs. Any way I can do my part while still enjoying my life and the freedoms of my family today is a plus." Presented by Wells Fargo, the Community Player of the Week program is intended to recognize players for their positive impact they make off the field in serving the Greater Los Angeles Area. As part of the program, Wells Fargo is honoring its own Los Angeles-area team members who have demonstrated a strong dedication to giving back to the community and reflecting the Bank's ongoing commitment to community support.
