The largest ever single donation from a former football player has been credited to Ndamukong Suh, who donated $2.6 million to the University of Nebraska. The money was split between the athletic department and engineering department at the school. Currently playing for the Detroit Lions in the NFL, he was
one of the most decorated football players at the college level. In 2011 the Giving Back Fund named him the most charitable athlete in America. This beats his 2011 and 2012 Sporting News players poll "dirtiest player in the NFL".
