In just four days, the Carolina Panthers will face the Denver Broncos in Super Bowl 50 at Levi’s Stadium in Santa Clara, CA. Panthers cornerback Charles “Peanut” Tillman unfortunately won’t be suiting up this go around due to an injury, but according to the 2-time Pro Bowler, he’s having even more fun this year then he did in 2005 when he was with the Chicago Bears.
While football’s been a major focus in Peanut’s life for the last 15-20 years, it’s the need to give back that always consumed the star athlete. “I think it’s important to give back because somebody gave back to me,” he tell us in an our exclusive interview. “That cycle of giving is something that I try to implement in my life.”
To continue his giving back ways, Charles is currently running an online raffle that fans can sign up for deemed Big Game Raffle. The winning prize is an all expense-paid trip to Super Bowl 50 for two. This includes the flight, hotel, and of course the game tickets. Visit his website to sign up.
For the rest of our sit down, Charles spoke about Super Bowl 50 and how he’s treating this year compared to last time he was there, his and his wife’s The Cornerstone Foundation, his daughter Tiana, the children’s book he wrote “The Middle School Rules Of Charles Tillman,” his thoughts on player concussions, winning the Walter Payton Man of the Year award in 2014 and more.
