About David Ball

Life as a defensive end in the NFL lasted 9 intense years (2004-2012). I played for the Chargers, the Jets, the Panthers, and eventually ended up in Nashville with the Titans. Throughout my career in athletics I was able to maintain an intense focus on “getting better”. I poured most of my passion, time, and energy into working on my pass-rush ability. Eventually, my body stopped performing at a high level and my football career ended. When my NFL career stopped life was extremely challenging. The purpose and structure I had for the past twenty years evaporated when I left the game. I felt lost…..It is terrifying to feel lost. The struggle of being lost eventually lead me to reach out to friends, professionals, mentors, and family to get back on track. This challenging period in my life gives me insight and empathy for people who face intense career and life transitions.
