Trufant Brothers Throw Out First Pitch

Atlanta's star cornerback Desmond Trufant has been quite the busy man in the past two weeks.

Following his trip to Florida where he joined his teammates in Miami for a players-only offseason workout camp, he returned to his home state of Washington where he and his two brothers threw out the first pitch at the Tacoma Rainiers baseball game.

Football runs thick in the Trufant family. Desmond's older brothers, Marcus and Isaiah, both played in the NFL. Marcus, the oldest of the brothers, was drafted by the Seattle Seahawks as the 11th overall pick of the 2003 Draft. He went on to become a Pro Bowl cornerback and had an exceptional career before retiring in 2014.

Although Isaiah isn't talked about on the national stage that Marcus and Desmond are, he's had his fair share of success enjoying five seasons in the NFL after dominating the Arena Football League. Isaiah bounced around from the Jets, Eagles and Cleveland in 2014.

The brothers share a foundation together called the "Trufant Foundation" where they are often seen out in the community participating in various activities around town.

Last month, they were seen reading Dr. Suess books to students at McCarver Elementary School.
