Preston's Playbook is a community outreach program focused on promoting excellence in education, a healthy lifestyle, and a respectful attitude amongst youth of all ages. It was launched in October 2017, with the help of college teammate, Justin Gilmore. Preston's Playbook executes his strategy through a variety of endeavors to encourage youths to master life skills and "Go Pro" wherever their God-given gifts and abilities lead them. His personal game plan of hard work, teamwork, dedication and staying out of trouble serves as an example.
"There are many personal attributes that one can write about to describe him. However, there is one single character trait that really defines him..."big hearted." Preston strongly desires to see all those around him succeed in life. He will go the extra mile to help people achieve their ambitions, even if that means personal sacrifice. He understands, recognizes, and often speaks of the support he has had, throughout his sports career. Had it not been for this support and encouragement he received from "big hearted people," then he would not be in the position he is in today. Many people talk about giving back and I can confidently say that Preston "lives" this every day, as he spends many hours, as well as personal money, to support others. Being big hearted and giving back is more than just a responsibility to Preston. No, to him, it defines who you are, which is why he goes to great efforts to do it." ~ Michael Hairston
