Tori Fugate, chief communications officer at KC Pet Project, told TODAY she is "honored" to have the Derrick Nnadi Foundation sponsoring the program. "We’ve had people stop in to our shelter today and say, 'Please tell Derrick thank you for doing this.' It’s so sweet," she said.

Be realistic. Unrealistic goals will only prevent you from growing. There are two common mistakes a dog owner can make that will slam the brakes hard on any potential progress you might be hoping for. First, the expectations we place on our dogs and ourselves. The misguided belief that your dog “should” be performing or responding at a certain predetermined level. Another mistake many owners make is having unrealistic assumptions. Many of us assume that our dog understands what we want and that he knows what we’re asking of him. As if that wasn’t bad enough, some of us assume that the dogs failure to perform means he’s either rebelling, stubborn, or just plain stupid.

The player wrote in a tweet that the announcement was "the perfect way to cap off this great season."
