Notes: Rookie seeks help from Lions fans to build scholarship

He may be a “dirtbag” on the field, but Detroit Lions rookie guard Christian Mahogany is seeking to start a life-changing endeavor off the field.

As you may remember from our “Five things to know about Christian Mahogany” piece, the former Boston College offensive lineman lost a close friend of his in 2023. Devin Willock, a close friend and high school teammate of Mahogany’s, died in a car crash just hours after the Georgia football program celebrated a National Championship with a parade.

Earlier this year, Mahogany launched a GoFundMe in an effort to establish a scholarship in Willock’s name.

“In remembrance of Devin’s extraordinary life, The Devin Willock Legacy Scholarship Award is dedicated to helping students in financial need through a scholarship program for residents of the New York-New Jersey metropolitan area,” the GoFundMe reads.

“The scholarship will serve as a platform for aspiring individuals to pursue their dreams, mirroring Devin’s commitment to excellence. We encourage prospective applicants to sign up, as we are in the process of creating a meaningful review system that ensures the fund benefits those who embody the qualities Devin exemplified.”

As of this publication, the GoFundMe account has raised over $2,700, but Mahogany is hoping Lions fans can push this much closer to their goal of $45,000.

If you’re able to help out, you can donate to Mahogany’s GoFundMe right here. If you don’t have the disposable income, consider just sharing the fundraiser on social media.

  • All 22 Films on YouTube continue to do some great work. Here’s their breakdown of how the Lions’ use of play-action broke defenses last year:
  • The folks over at Texans Wire created an offensive line ranking system based on aggregating rankings from Footballguys, FTN Fantasy, and Pro Football Network. You already know who came in first.

    • During his media session at rookie minicamp, Lions cornerback Terrion Arnold said he wanted a pair of Buffs. Looks like Michigan cornerback Will Johnson hooked him up:

    • PFF was kind to the Lions when it came to their top-25 under 25 list and also their offseason rankings. You probably won’t be as big of a fan of their quarterback rankings.
