A native of Houston, Texas, Darrell Green was the Redskins’ top draft choice in 1983 from Texas A&I University. Green was named the World’s Fastest Athlete in 1991 and has been the winner of the NFL’s Fastest Man competition four times during his career. Green has received many awards for his accomplishments both on and off the field receiving countless accolades for his tireless efforts championing charitable causes.
He capitalized on his last year as a professional football player to bring attention to what Green sees as his ultimate career. His passionate commitment to strengthening families and helping children is at the center of his long-range goals and was the impetus for the founding of the Darrell Green Youth Life Foundation (DGYLF). Since 1988, the DGYLF has offered opportunities for children and their families. The DGYLF provides a wide-range of academic development and values-based education programs through learning centers operating in select urban, suburban, and rural neighborhoods throughout America.
Green considers the Darrell Green Youth Life Learning Center (DGLC) the centerpiece of the DGYLF. The DGLC was established in 1993 to equip youth to address obstacles they face while training them to provide quality leadership for their peers, family members, and their community. The DGLC flagship center in Northeast Washington, DC and its Richmond, VA, and Nashville, TN affiliates currently operate in the DGYLF network with an expansion plan for other centers underway. He has founded the Darrell Green Business Council for Youth bringing together business leaders to utilize their expertise in support of DGYLF programs. In addition, he served as a board member for the Baltimore-Washington 2012 Olympic Bid, NFL/NFLPA September 11th Relief Fund, and the Loudoun Education Foundation. In 2003, he was selected to serve as the Chair of President Bush’s Council on Service and Civic Participation. The Council consists of an outstanding group of Americans who will work together to strengthen and promote service and civic participation. He currently sits on the boards of the WolfTrap Foundation as its National Spokesman for Education, Washington, DC’s Board of Trade, and Marymount University.
Green has also flourished in the business arena, successfully operating a number of companies in a variety of industries under the conglomerate, Darrell Green Holdings. Darrell Green Enterprises manages endorsements, speaking engagements, and autograph signings for a growing roster of current and former athletes. Intekras, Inc is a SBA-certified 8(a) company offering integrated solutions in three primary disciplines: Information Security, National Security and Defense Systems. Trusted Solutions Group specializes in providing training and workforce development solutions to government and industry. Darrell Green Mortgage and Score Title & Escrow serve the residential real estate market in the Washington, DC Metropolitan Area.
Green completed his Bachelor of Science degree in general studies and social science at St. Paul’s College in Lawrenceville, Virginia. In 1999, Marymount University recognized Green for his extraordinary humanitarian endeavors and conferred upon him the honorary Doctorate of Humane Letters degree. In 2002, George Washington University and St. Paul’s College awarded Green his second and third honorary Doctorate of Humane Letters degrees.
Darrell and his wife Jewell have three children: Jerrell, Jared, and Joi.
