A hometown boy giving back to his community.

Colton Underwood was born and raised in Washington, Illinois. Active in football and other sports throughout his childhood, Colton learned early on the value in team work, discipline and community. While Colton played football in the NFL he established the Colton Underwood Legacy Foundation to carry on his passion for community. The Foundation serves to promote youth sports and benefit the research and support of those living with Cystic Fibrosis.

Cystic Fibrosis, a genetic disease that primarily affects the lungs and digestive system, is a cause close to Colton’s heart – his cousin was diagnosed with CF at birth.
