Don Davis, Director POA

Don Davis, Director POA

Don played 11 years in the NFL with four different teams; New Orleans Saints, Tampa Bay Buccaneers, St. Louis Rams and New England Patriots, where he was a two time Super Bowl Champion. Don believes the only reason he was allowed to play so long in the NFL is because he was called to minister to athletes. After retiring from the Pats in 2007, he joined Coach Bill Belichick’s staff as Assistant Strength and Conditioning Coach and Team Chaplain. Sensing a call from the Lord to go into full time ministry, Don became Director of NFL Programs for (Pro Athletes Outreach) in 2008. PAO is a conference based ministry for professional athletes. In 2010 Don was hired as a Regional Director of National Football League Players Association. The NFLPA is responsible for the players wages, hours and working conditions as well as educating them on the benefits and programs available to them. Along with being a devoted husband and loving father, Don also speaks regularly with organizations like Iron Sharpens Iron as well as local churches. His prayer is that through humility, honesty, transparency and authenticity, all see will God shining through him on a daily basis.
