Devon went to Cleveland Ohio to speak at the Fuel Up To Play 60 Summit where he shared the stage with 2x gold Olympian and champion boxer Clareesa Shields. He spoke about how he thinks we can all make an impact in our communities.
Devon created the “Devon Kennard Scholarship Fund” for students who are apart of the Midnight Golf Program in Detroit. Midnight Golf Program is an after school program for high school students who are in their junior and senior years. MGP spends time mentoring the kids as well as helping the kids get ready for college by providing SAT tutoring, walking them through application processes as well as applying for scholarships.
Listen to DK explain the scholarship fund he created for students who are apart of the Midnight Golf Program in Detroit Michigan!
Although Devon doesn’t play for the NY Giants anymore they continued with the volunteer and donation work he started with New City Kids. New City Kids just received a $27,000 donation from the New York Giants thanks to the work Devon started!
DK was the featured coach at the Hogs and Dawgs pass rush and pass protection camp last weekend! It was a special moment for Devon because it was the first time he was able to share the field with his father and brother and they spent 4 hours teaching high school kids specific techniques that will help the kids take their game to the next level.
Devon partnered with NYCDA Founder/CEO Jeremy Snepar to teach each others the basics of code and the fundamentals of tackling. How does learning code compare to football? Watch to find out.

I am excited to become an ambassador to Klean Athlete. Sports, training, and health have been a huge part of my life since I was 5 years old. I first fell in love with the game of football at the age of 5 when my dad put me on his shoulders after he and his Dallas Cowboys teammate won the Super Bowl in 1996. That was the day I knew I wanted to follow in his footsteps and play in the NFL. Fast forward to today and I just finished my 4th year in the NFL playing for the New York Football Giants.
