THIS IS EPISODE 516 OF THE SPORTS SPECTRUM PODCAST
Andre’ Davis played nine seasons in the NFL from 2002-2010. He was selected in the second round of the 2002 draft by the Cleveland Browns, where he spent three seasons before one in New England, one in Buffalo and four in Houston until retiring after the 2010 season. He made his mark as a kick returner, and brought back three kickoffs for touchdowns in 2007 with Houston.
Davis played his college football at Virginia Tech, where he teamed with Michael Vick to form a dangerous QB-WR tandem that helped the Hokies to a 22-2 record in the two seasons Vick and Davis played together, including a trip to the national championship game in January 2000.
On this episode of the podcast, we talk to Davis about his journey from Virginia Tech to the NFL, the overseas trip to Rwanda that he was on with his wife as the global pandemic was beginning, playing with Michael Vick in college, and the physical and mental struggles he’s worked through since retirement.

My hope on my 41st birthday is that we would choose to be the light in a dark world rather then spread the darkness of division! I heard @loritts Dr. Bryan Loritts say, “Proximity breeds empathy!” Don’t hide your light in your home behind a computer screen! Step out, be bold, be courageous and engage with others who don’t look like you or think like you! You will be amazed and challenged to learn many new things which will cause you to have more compassion and empathy to those around you. Matthew 5:16 says, “Let your light so shine before men that they may see your good works and glorify your Father in heaven.” #BeTheLight #ShareLight #BirthdayWishes
