Denver Broncos legend, NFL Hall of Famer and entrepreneur, Terrell Davis was born October 28, 1972 and had a historic career from 1995 to 2001. Davis was drafted by the Broncos in the sixth round (196th pick overall) of the 1995 NFL Draft. Davis is the Denver Broncos all-time leading rusher, with 7,607 rushing yards. As a player, he was given the nickname “T. D.” by players, fans and the media; this denoted both the initials of his first and last name as well as being an abbreviation for touchdown. Davis was sent to the Pro Bowl in the 1996, ’97, and ’98 seasons. Nicknamed “TD,” Davis popularized the “Mile High Salute,” a military-style salute given to fans and teammates in celebration of a touchdown.
On July 27, 2007, it was announced that Davis would be inducted into the Denver Broncos Ring of Fame. His induction ceremony took place at Invesco Field at Mile High on September 23, 2007, in a Broncos home game against the Jacksonville Jaguars. In 2006, Davis was inducted into the Breitbard Hall of Fame and into the NFL Hall of Fame in 2017.
In support of every child being given a chance to succeed, Davis created The Terrell Davis Salute the Kids Foundation, which sells culinary products that raises money to support programs dedicated to fighting world hunger. Additionally, Davis supports the United States military. He partners with the Denver-based charity The Greatest Generations Foundations, which supports war veterans visiting their battlefields where they once served and helps educate people about the services and sacrifices of our nation’s veterans.
Davis’ newest project called “My Salute to the Fallen” will compile a series of stories from NFL players who served in the two World wars, Korea, and Vietnam. We are honored to have him as a Global supporter of people who are differently-abled.
