TigerNet spoke with Joey Summer on Thursday morning and he discussed Deshaun Watson's high character as one of the reasons he started this project.

"Deshaun has meant so much to the city," Summer said. "In addition to being an incredible athlete, Deshaun is truly a genuine human being. I have a disabled brother that went to Gainesville High school with Deshaun. Deshaun was incredibly friendly with my little brother and would have full conversations with him whenever passing him in the hallway. I'm a diehard Georgia Bulldogs fan, but Deshaun turned me into a Clemson fan (for this past season only, with all due respect). We hope this project will celebrate the example Deshaun and his family has set as role models for the citizens of Gainesville."
