DONOVIN DARIUS TALKS REAL CHRISTIAN FAITH
Episode 81 brings us Donovin Darius to talk about his Christian faith.
Donovin Lee Darius (born August 12, 1975) is a former American football safety in the National Football League. He was drafted by the Jacksonville Jaguars 25th overall in the 1998 NFL Draft. He played for nine seasons with the team.
While at Syracuse University, Darius set the team record for tackles by a defensive back with 379. He was a Big East All-Conference player in 1995 and 1996, and graduated in 1997.
Selected 25th overall in the 1998 NFL Draft by the Jacksonville Jaguars, Donovin was then the highest pick ever by the team for a defensive back.
In 2004, Darius led the secondary in tackles for a seventh straight season. He posted career highs in forced fumbles and interceptions. His season-ending injury in 2005 stopped his consecutive start streak at 37.
He signed a three-year extension in 2005 which put him under contract through 2008. However, he tore his anterior cruciate ligament during the Jaguars’ second game of the 2005 NFL season.
On November 20, 2006, during a Monday Night Football game against the New York Giants, he broke his leg and missed the rest of the 2006 season.
On December 14, 2006, Darius was released by the Jaguars.
Currently serving on the NFL Players Association Executive Committee, Donovin resides in Jacksonville, Florida. He earned an MBA from Jacksonville University.
