The Cardinals haven’t been in St. Louis since 1988, but the team continues to have ties there. So many of the organization’s great players still live in the area, and when the Rams were in St. Louis, the Cardinals would have alumni functions every year when the Cards went to St. Louis for their annual road trip.
Still, it’s good to hear that team president Michael Bidwill and the Cardinals decided to help the St. Louis chapter of the National Football Foundation. (Bidwill had been inducted into the NFF’s Leadership Hall of Fame in January of 2016.)
It would have gone unnoticed if the executive director of the St. Louis group hadn’t talked about it with the St. Louis Post-Dispatch. Bidwill donated $10,000, helping underwrite an annual banquet that honors the 25 best high school players in St. Louis and gives out scholarships to 11 student-athletes. The Rams had been doing it, but that ended when the Rams moved to Los Angeles.
