UNION — New York Jets linebacker Demario Davis visited Boys & Girls Clubs of Union County yesterday. He met with over 200 youth at the Union Club and discussed the importance of staying in school, making smart decisions, having a dream and staying focused on your goal.
Davis answered questions about his career path and signed autographs for all the youth. He spent time with younger members reading a storybook and told them the value of reading.
“It was an exciting day for us, as Demario shared his enthusiasm with our youth,” said Russell Triolo, chief executive officer. “Our members were truly inspired by his journey to the NFL from a small town, and the lessons he learned along the way to achieving your goals. We are thrilled to have a professional athlete meet with our members and provide support on having your dreams come true.”
Ronald Brangman, associate club director, commented, “Demario was inspiring! He spoke about dreams and remaining focused on your goals.”
The Boys & Girls Clubs of Union County impact the lives of over 4,000 youth in Union County each year, by providing the tools for them to be productive citizens and meet their full potential as adults.
