Meet Stephen Davis: Former NFL Pro Bowler Gives Back

Not sure if many of you know this – right here in Irmo is former NFL Pro-Bowler Stephen Davis. Yes, the incredible running back from Spartanburg who played his college days on the plains of Auburn but who came back to the Palmetto State after a professional career that led him to St Louis, Washington, and the Carolina Panthers.

I don’t know Stephen but we do say hello in Publix occasionally and actually spoke for awhile last year while standing in line voting in the General Election. I’ve never heard a bad thing about him and everytime I see him, he always seems to be in a good mood and is “low key” about “who he is.” Refreshing when you think of how most professional athletes carry/handle themselves. Anyway….I received an email today that I had to share because…again…I think it shows what a good person he is. Someone giving back to his/our community.
