…………………….

Rashied Davis, born in Los Angeles, CA, has been shaped by many people and events. Judy, his God-praising mother, taught him how to survive with the basics of life; food, shelter and safety. After his dad was killed by gun-wielding teen, his mother struggled daily to care for her children but she stayed the course. His aunt Bertha offered up a giant slice of discipline, faith, and making choices to always doing the right thing. Through these strong women, Rashied learned core values that would continue to shape his entire life.

Education also served to shape Rashied’s path. Elementary school teachers instilled the gift of literacy which paved the way to West Los Angeles Junior College and ultimately San Jose State University where he excelled as a student and athlete. As a junior at SJSU, Rashied led the team as a wide receiver with a record-setting average of 19.6 yards per catch.  Continue reading
