Even the hosts at the NFL scouting combine have to have some fun, too!
Every year at the event, NFL Network host Rich Eisen takes part in the 40-yard dash in attempts to raise money as part of his Run Rich Run campaign.
It started as a fun gag back in 2005 when he was challenged by former Denver Broncos running back Terrell Davis. And now Eisen participates in the drill every year, all while wearing a suit and tie. Since then, more than $300,000 has been donated to St. Jude Children’s Research Hospital in Memphis because of this campaign.
To make things even better, New England Patriots head coach Bill Belichick made a surprise appearance and handed the host an undisclosed check to support the cause.
Belichick has also surprised him in the booth in 2017 and 2018.
“Oh my gosh, what a pleasure to see you, sir,” Eisen said to Belichick. “You’ve done it again. Thank you so much. Coach, good to see you. Thank you so much. You’re a good man.”
“This is just as wonderful as it gets,” he continued. “It is as extremely generous as it was last year.”

Great thanks to @patriots HC Bill Belichick for crashing our #Combine set for a second straight year to, once again, lead by example and drop off an extremely generous check for @StJude on behalf of #RunRichRun— Rich Eisen (@richeisen) March 3, 2019
