Former NFL Player Devotes His Life To Getting Wounded Vets Back In Gym And This Story Is 100% PURE Motivation
David Vobora was a recipient of the ‘Mr. Irrelevant’ award back in 2008 when he was drafted by the St. Louis Rams with the 252nd pick of the NFL draft, the VERY LAST pick in that year’s draft. Prior to that, David played his college football at the University of Idaho. The Rams released David back in 2011, and after he officially retired from the NFL in 2012 Mr. Vobora began the next chapter of his life and opened up the Performance Vault Inc. gym in Dallas, Texas, a gym focused on the rehabilitation of wounded combat veterans which works closely with the Wounded Warrior Foundation.
Above is a quick clip delving into David Vobora’s life after the NFL, and it only scratches the surface in showing how much of an impact he’s had on our wounded combat veterans. In 2014 David founded a non-profit charity named the Adaptive Training Foundation (ATF) whose stated mission is to ’empower the human athlete, restore hope through movement, and redefine the limits of individuals with disabilities’. If this bro’s story isn’t a reminder that there are good people in the world accomplishing great things each and every day then I don’t know if there’s anything out there that will inspire you.
