Matt Davison Is Taking on Bullies

Steve Sipple talks with Matt Davison about his work against bullying

“I’ve not been a saint in my life,” the former Nebraska standout wide receiver says. “Have I made mistakes? Absolutely. Was I a perfect kid? Nope. But one thing that always touched my heart was how kids treated other kids. I just always had a soft spot for kids who were maybe a little slow, who weren’t good athletes, who maybe were a little overweight, kids that a lot of people made fun of.

“You know, I just hated that.”

Davison plans to conduct summer camps across the state in which he will provide guidance and instruction in both football and life. He’ll also make presentations to high school teams and school assemblies.
