During his sit-down with Chris Wallace on Fox News Sunday's Power Player of the Week segment, Washington Redskins quarterback Robert Griffin III discussed football, family, his foundation and his future.

While Griffin III's been hard at work at Redskins Park in Loudoun County, Va., over the last few months getting ready for the 2015 season, he's also been touching lives of those around him and working on a Master's degree in communications.

"I just try to make sure every day that I'm blessed to live on this earth, that I seize that day," Griffin told Wallace when asked about getting his degree. "I'm 25, and I know with each passing second I'm getting older. So I might as well seize every single one of those seconds, make sure I'm doing as much as I possibly can in the community. … And to instill that into everybody around me is truly my goal."

Griffin III's foundation, Family of 3, got its official start in early 2015, but the quarterback's been helping families for a while now, as was seen during the segment with Tim Maxell and his family.

Griffin III said the foundation will give money to those in need, "but we're also going to give them our time, our networks, and allow them to continually grow."

"To incorporate them into the everyday process of what a family is, whether it's Thanksgiving dinner, Easter celebrations, those kind of things," he said. "We want to be able to let them enjoy that, and let us enjoy it, too."
