  • The Québécois hero, McGill graduate, and Super Bowl winner Laurent Duvernay-Tardif never fails to impress.
  • Reports say that he's been taking this time to help volunteer in one of Quebec's CHSLDs, which led him to become the face on a cover Sports Illustrated.
  • See the Sports Illustrated cover photo below!

Laurent Duvernay-Tardif is a local hero — to say the least. Not only has he earned himself a spot in the hearts of many Quebecers with his social media presence, but he's also internationally known as the first active NFL player to become a doctor. The Kansas City Chiefs player graduate from McGill Medical School back in 2018.

Laurent is a great role model and has proven himself time and time again to be an immensely hard-working individual.

His impressive resume just got a little longer because now he can add the fact that he's the face on a cover of Sports Illustrated.

According to CTV News, Duvernay-Tardif is currently volunteering in one of Quebec's CHSLDs. He confirmed such in his interview with Sports Illustrated but has not mentioned exactly where he's been helping out.

The Kansas City Chief's offensive lineman is using his medical degree and courage to help the most vulnerable right now.

MTL Blog reached out to Laurent's publicist for confirmation of such — this article will be updated upon receiving their response. 

This doctor, Super Bowl winner, and founder of his own foundation, Foundation LDT, is just one of those people who has an impact on those who follow him. 

And clearly, the people behind Sports Illustrated recognize his greatness as well.

Choosing to work on the front lines of the battle against COVID-19 during his football off-season is what made Laurent stand out enough to be put a cover of Sports Illustrated.

He told Sports Illustrated that he has been assigned to a CHSLD in the South Shore, near his home.

About a month ago, Laurent took to social media to discuss the importance of social distancing.

Instead of using his words, Duvernay-Tardif gave his followers a visual of what happens when people do and don't practice social distancing.

This time around, he's reportedly taking action and giving his time and education to those who need it most.

We couldn't be more proud of LDT and look forward to receiving more information regarding his volunteering at the CHSLD. 

For now, we can all admire his good looks and strength on the cover of Sports Illustrated magazine —what an honour that is!

And, I must say, scrubs have never looked so good.
