Demario Davis is a linebacker with the New Orleans Saints. He was selected in the third round of the 2012 NFL Draft by the New York Jets, where he played from 2012-2015 and again in 2017. During the 2016 season, he played with the Cleveland Browns. In 2018, Davis signed a free-agent deal with New Orleans, and in 2019 he was named to the AP All-Pro first team despite not making the Pro Bowl.
Early in the 2019 season, Davis was fined for wearing a “Man of God” headband. But after the NFL rescinded the fine, he was able to make the headbands available to the public and raise money for St. Dominic Hospital in his home state of Mississippi.
In October 2019, he became a published author, releasing his first book, “The Unsuccessful Champion: Finding True Victory in the Midst of Adversity.”
On this episode of the podcast, Davis looks back at the 2019 season, what he learned from God, being an unsuccessful champion, and finding joy and peace in Jesus when things don’t go his way on the field.
