Carolina Panthers Linebacker Thomas Davis not only leads his team on the field as one of the defensive captains, but is a huge advocate in the community. Named this year's Walter Payton Man of the Year Nominee by the Carolina Panthers, Thomas and his wife Kelly run the Thomas Davis Defending Dreams Foundation to equip students to become the next generation of leaders by encouraging them to develop the life and social skills needed to succeed. Thomas Davis also received the 2014 Call to Courage Award through Athletes in Action, given to an athlete who "displays exemplary character through adversity and triumph. At the heart of the character is a commitment to Jesus Christ that is reflected in every aspect of his life."
Through education, leadership development and volunteerism we have the power to assist students in seeing the potential of their dreams in action.
