Charles 'Peanut' Tillman was known on the football team for being an outstanding teammate, All-Pro cornerback, and revolutionary playmaker for his 'peanut punch' on defense.

Off the field, he's known for his charity, as the former Chicago Bear standout was the 2013 Walter Payton Man of the Year Award winner.

The former NFL star and Louisiana Ragin' Cajun Hall of Famer, who is now a member of the FBI, continues to do charitable work.

Last month, Peanut rowed 65 miles in 24 hours across Lake Michigan to raise money for childhood cancer research, sharing the inspiration his daughter continues to give him.
