Street thug-turned athletic All-Star, now Actor, Motivational Speaker and Fitness Entrepreneur.
Born in prison to a drug addicted mother, I grew up homeless and lived on the streets in my early years. With the help of football and a school mate, I turned my life around and changed my focus to academics and athletics.
I suffered a career ending injury, while at SMU, leaving my football dreams behind. After graduating with a BA in Economics/Finance, I pursued a career in entertainment. I’ve been involved in several films including American Exit and Scumbag. I have also been seen on HBO’s Ray Donovan and SYFY’s Robot Combat League. You can also catch me in several commercials and print ads for JCPennys, Macy’s, Nike, and Chevrolet to name a few.
My success inspired me to start the non-profit, Brothers By Choice. Sharing my story has brought me opportunities to speak to large organizations, events and schools around the country. My biggest passion in life is to show at-risk youth that through hard work and dedication you can overcome any hardship and live the life of your dreams.
Fitness helped save my life through football and martial arts. I created Fit By Devonric so I can use the platform that different brands have given me to positively influence people the same way I was. I have been blessed to work with Soho House, Forme Life, Theragun and a variety others.
