Devard Darling” is from a family of professional and “Olympic Athletes, so it is no surprise that Devard and his twin brother, Devaughn knew at a very young age that they were both going to play in the NFL one day. The vision quickly became reality when the twins joined accepted “scholarships to play “football as student-athletes at Florida State University, one of the premier “NCAA Division I programs in the “country.

It was time to study and play college football, but playing professional football in the NFL was clearly in sight. Tragically, however, Devard physically lost his “twin brother, Devaughn during a spring football practice at “Florida State University from over-exhaustion and dehydration, triggering the “Sickle Cell trait that both brothers share. Although Devaughn was physically gone from Devard’s life, Devard resolved to continued the path and harness Devaughn’s spiritual being, pushing forward with his professional career.

To put salt on he and his family’s wounds, “FSU made a statement that the University would honor Devard’s “academic scholarship, but would not allow him to compete in “collegiate athletics due to the ‘risk’ now involved from his brother’s passing. So, Devard transferred to “Washington State University and was then drafted by the “Baltimore Ravens in 2004. His career includes playing “Wide Receiver for the “Ravens, the “Kansas City Chiefs and the “Houston Texans. More importantly, Devard started the “As One Foundation” to educate others and help them avoid any possibility of sharing Devaughn’s fate. Devard is currently running the “As One Foundation” and working at “Altruista in “Texas, providing financial stability to “professional athletes. Although Devaughn is buried in a full “FSU football uniform, he will always be by Devard’s side, “emotionally and “spiritually.

Motivational Quote

I can do all things through “Christ who strengthens me. – Devaughn’s Bible verse Write down the revelation and make it plain on tablets so that a herald may run with it. For the revelation awaits an appointed time; it speaks of the end and will not prove false. Though it linger, wait for it; it will certainly come and will not delay – Devard’s Bible verse
