The Aaron Davis ExperienceWritten by Ross Ferguson
Millions of people around the country have heard him speak about his challenges to rise to the top and to dream big.
1994 National Champion Nebraska split end Aaron Davis delivers a message of success both on a personal and professional level.
He exudes positive energy as a speaker, beginning his presentation by asking his audience to just smile at one another, then sharing a quick story about a phone call he had this morning.
His style of delivery is simple, just like on the field, come out with a bang.
"I figure if you come out swinging, you get 'em engaged immediately. You know, I don't like to say yeah, thank you for being here, my name is, they don't care about the accolades and your past history and as far as your resume. They wanna know what are you gonna do to help me out today?" says Aaron Davis, Inspirational Speaker.
Only under the guide of legendary Cornhusker coach Tom Osborne, was Davis able to venture into speaking publicly delivering a message to never give up.
"We didn't have a lot growing up man, but what we did have, I had an amazing dad and an amazing mom, who instilled in us the appreciation of hard work and perseverance and to pursue your dreams. Regardless of what you may not have, you don't have to allow a lack of resources to stop you from being resourceful,” says Davis.
And it appears his message has been received.
"This is actually the second time I've seen him and both times he's really been inspirational. He actually motivates you and stuff. He's a really good speaker,” says Jacob Dibben, Maywood HS Junior.
"I think a lot of people should listen to and take his advice on it, because it's gonna benefit you in the long run,” says Natasha Bomberger, Maywood HS Senior.
Above all else, Davis wants everyone to dream and to dream big.
"We almost look at dreams as fairy tales, where nothing you see was someone's dream first, it started in the mind, the heart, the sole and it took boldness for them to pursue it and that's what I challenge these students to do today. Dream big!" says Davis.
"He told a lot about how to not to forget your dreams and just keep working for everything that you have, that you want in life,” says Isaac Wyman, Maywood HS Junior.
"He was really good to listen to. He told us not to give up on our dreams and keep pushing yourself to get to it,” says Katelynn Gerlach, Maywood HS Junior.
Monday, the students of Maywood Public Schools heard a message of success and truth, also known as the Aaron Davis Experience.
