Darrin Smith—and his Attitude of a Champion message—have had a dramatic impact on companies and individuals alike. Here is just some of what they're saying about Darrin.

"Darrin did an incredible job talking to our sales force. His story about turning a career around with the attitude of a champion is something they--and all salespeople--can relate to. They were truly excited and I know his message will improve our bottom line by helping us take personal responsibility for our attitudes." --Steve Kaiser, Regional Sales Coordinator, AFLAC

"Darrin is the perfect example of perseverance, passion, and professionalism. His personal story of mentorship and commitment makes him the ideal role model for kids and adults alike. He has inspired many within the Big Brothers Big Sister's corporate network with his powerful story."—Gale S. Nelson, Vice President, Big Brothers, Big Sisters of Greater Miami


"Inspirational is the way you can describe Darrin! He teaches kids that there is more to life than just sports and that they have to be prepared to work hard and stay focused on their goals, no matter what obstacles they face. He teaches life."—Frank Rojas, Head Football Coach, G. Holmes Braddock High School

"Darrin Smith exemplifies what it means to give back. A former student-athlete, he embraces the U Family tradition and shows our current student-athletes that success is not limited to championship rings. His off-field accomplishments make him a role model and inspiration. He is as comfortable on the field as he is mingling with our highest donors. We, at the University of Miami, are proud to have Darrin as an alumnus and member of the U Family." --Amy C. Ferguson, Assistant Athletic Director, University of Miami

“Darrin has no doubt experienced life challenges and tremendous successes. As a result, he has created an attitude and a powerful message of a champion that is fitting for men, women and youths from all cultural backgrounds, corporate America, and the non-profit and faith communities.”—Dr. Ted Greer, Jr., President and CEO, Fresh Start Family Services
