Former Badger wide receiver Lee Evans was recently named the 2007 Buffalo Bills Walter Payton Man of the Year. Evans was voted on by selected members of the Western New York community and was awarded $1,000 to give to the charity of his choice.
Since his rookie season, Evans has been very involved in numerous community service events. Lee has participated in the Buffalo Public Schools “What Moves U Fitness Program,” Buffalo’s “Team Up 4 MS,” the “Billieve – Breast Cancer Awareness Campaign,” Make-A-Wish Foundation and many others.
