FedEx Corp recruited NFL stars and teamed up with Junior Achievement to open the first-ever pop-up lemonade stand in the heart of the Super Bowl XLVII Media Center in New Orleans, giving students the opportunity to run their own small business in one of the most highly-trafficked venues of the Super Bowl city. Running back Alfred Morris of the Washington Redskins (a FedEx Ground NFL Player of the Year nominee)  and Donald Driver of the Green Bay Packers helped run the pop-up lemonade stand with local JA students.

The pop-up lemonade stand was part of the celebration of the 10th year that FedEx has sponsored the FedEx Air & Ground NFL Players of the Week awards and its ongoing support of today’s small business owners and students. Since 1996, FedEx has donated more than $10 million dollars to Junior Achievement Worldwide in support of small business and the entrepreneurs of tomorrow, in part through the FedEx Air & Ground NFL Players of the Week program.

The FedEx Air & Ground Players of the Year will be announced during the “2nd Annual NFL Honors,” a nationally televised awards show airing Saturday night at 9 p.m. ET on CBS. The 2012 FedEx Air NFL Player of the Year nominees are quarterbacks Tom Brady, Peyton Manning and Aaron Rodgers, and the 2012 FedEx Ground NFL Player of the Year nominees are running backs Alfred Morris, Marshawn Lynch and Adrian Peterson. FedEx will make two $25,000 donations in the names of the winning players to the Junior Achievement offices in their NFL cities.
