Darrelle Revis has been enjoying his retirement and since then he’s had opportunities to enjoy life off the field in a major way. With this NFL season underway we got a chance to catch up with Revis Island at the First Annual Yellow Ball to talk football and much more. The Yellow Ball, took place on Monday, September 10, at the Brooklyn Museum and benefited Young Audiences Arts for Learning, the nation’s largest arts-in-education network whose work strives to inspire young people and expand their learning through the arts.
Check out what Darrelle had to say below.
How has retirement been for you?
It’s been great, I feel like I had a great career. I was passionate about being one of the best ever. It took alot of dedication and hard work it was good I’m happy and content with my career. Now I’m just a fanatic of the sport.
Did you catch any NFL action yesterday?
Yeah, I definitely watched the Giants and Jaguars game I wanted to see the match-up with Odell and Ramsey pretty exciting. It was a great game to watch.
What brought you to the Yellow Ball?
Number One, I’m a big fan of Pharrell and his Philanthropy work. I have a foundation myself, The Darrelle Revis Foundation, we raise awareness and we donated money from my foundation to his cause today it’s a great event, its pretty awesome. We’re all creative in our own space and it’s good to give back.
How do you feel about the Nation Anthem protest in the NFL?
You know Kap is doing a remarkable job in his protest and we are all backing him, in what the protest stand for in Justice and Equality in low-income communities. Most of us that play professional sports come from low-income communities, so we see this on the day-to-day basis in our own neighborhoods it’s good we’re fighting as much as we can by taking a stand as much as we can. For Kap to stand up for people who can’t speak in these low-income communities speaks alot and I think we’re all behind him. I’m retired so I can speak on it out here as I’m doing now. But for the current players still playing they still have a huge platform to protest as much as they can.
