For all of his community involvement, Jared Cook, TE, Rams, was recognized by the U.S. Congress and given the Special Congressional Recognition award.
Cook was one of five St. Louis Rams players who helped bring awareness to the situation in Ferguson, Missouri, earlier this year when they entered the field with the “hand up, don’t shoot” gesture.
As part of his recognition, Cook will also serve as the spokesman for the youth outreach group in St. Louis.
