A 14-year veteran of the NFL, Fletcher was originally signed by the Saint Louis Rams as an undrafted rookie in 1998. He has appeared in the last three Pro Bowls, won a Super Bowl Championship with the Rams in 1999, and has been nominated (or was a finalist) for the NFL’s Walter Payton Man of the Year award five times. The Award honors a player's volunteer and charity work, as well as his excellence on the field.
Fletcher is frequently recognized for his work on and off the field. He was awarded the 2012 Bart Starr Award, which honors an NFL player for outstanding character and leadership in the home, on the field, and in the community. Additionally, he was named the 2011 Washington Redskins Inaugural Community Service Award recipient.
Fletcher founded the London’s Bridge Foundation in 2003. The foundation is dedicated to addressing the inequities facing underprivileged and underrepresented children through mentoring and charitable giving programs in Cleveland; Washington, D.C.; Charlotte, North Carolina; and Buffalo, New York. London’s Bridge teaches children essential life skills and lessons, and builds standards of education, leadership, teamwork, health and fitness while instilling values of good citizenship and public service.
The foundation’s trademark program is London’s Brigade, a mentoring network. Each year, London hosts a mentoring program at MacFarland Middle School in Washington, D.C. London's Brigade also takes monthly educational field trips around various sites in the District, and, through the Internet, London provides 24/7 mentoring to the students.
