Anquan Boldin wins NFLPA’s Whizzer White Award

Wide receiver Anquan Boldin became the first 49ers player to win the NFL Players Association’s Byron “Whizzer” White Award, given annually since 1967 for service to team, community and country.

Boldin’s Q81 Foundation has helped underprivileged youth for over a decade, and it will host a three-day fundraiser next month in his native Florida.

“Over the years, we’ve had a chance to see people’s lives change,” Boldin said Thursday on NFL Network. “Our mission is to help people that are in need. Where I come from, there’s not much opportunity. I try to create opportunity for those that don’t have it.”

Boldin’s foundation received a $100,000 check from the NFLPA for winning the Byron “Whizzer” White Award.
