Sports were an integral part of Devon’s childhood. Growing up between Indiana and Minnesota, he was a year-round athlete playing basketball, football, and baseball. Although he ultimately chose to play football beyond high school, he feels privileged to have competed against top basketball talent and forged lifelong friendships with the Harlem Globetrotters and NBA players. Prior to the COVID pandemic, Devon was proud to represent his country as a member of team USA football team, which led to a professional career in Europe. He hopes to return as soon as the pandemic ends, but in the meantime, he is serving his community as a healthcare assistant for Hennipen County. Devon is grateful for the opportunities that sports have provided him throughout life.
