Football player, UW Comm senior Michael Kneip gives back in big ways

Mike KneipOne lesson that Communication senior Michael Kneip has learned over the years is that a PB&J sandwich can go a long way. An offensive lineman on the football team with two seasons left, Kneip is using his position at the UW to give back.

“There are so many people who watch Husky football, and we’re using it as a platform,” he said in an article published on the front page of the UW website. “To be part of the program here and to have the opportunity to help others by playing the sport we love is really special to us.”

Kneip received extra financial help through the Chase Anderson Endowed Scholarship, which honors the life of a UW student who died unexpectedly in 2008. Watch to see what inspires Kneip to continue to help the community and how delivering sandwiches to the Union Gospel Mission has affected him:
