Description:
Donnie Edwards is a Hall of Fame linebacker that played in the NFL for the Kansas City Chiefs and his hometown team, the San Diego Chargers. He is revered as one of the best linebackers of all time and his name will forever be etched in football's history with several records that still stand today. His story of making it out of the streets to be the first of anyone in his family to earn a college degree, set the NFL ablaze with an incredible career, and to then finish playing and start an unbelievably impactful non-profit is nothing short of inspirational in every sense of the word. He was small by NFL standards but tenacious and never took no for an answer. And once it was time to hang them up, he found that passion was the only driver that would help guide him in this total identity shift. Despite the many successes in many facets of his life, he is quick to recognize the many full-circle moments that helped him attain that success. Since retiring from football, has been fully focused on the giving back side of that circle. He found that he closely related in several ways with former soldiers that had experienced combat and had a hard time adjusting to life after their career in the military and has dedicated his life to helping them and their families find peace and closure.
