What is Key Block?
Key Block is an organization created by Travelle Wharton of the Cincinnati Bengals. Since entering the NFL in 2004, Travelle has made it a priority to give back to his community. He has used his influence to benefit charities throughout the state of South Carolina.
The Name Key Block…
As an offensive lineman in the NFL, it is Travelle’s responsibility to stand with his fellow linemen and block the defensive pressures of the opposition. The name Key Block was created in representation of a united community, teamed together to block the pressures placed upon our local charities that may prevent them from fulfilling their mission goals.
