Bay Area born and bred. There is no one thing that can define this man. He is more than what meets the eye. On one instance, you may consider him as just another success story, but on another instance, you shall know that he is much beyond all of this. He is the one who has enthralled all with his successes while making sure to change lives through his non-profit organization called DreamChasersNeverSleep. From playing football in college and the pros and setting massive records to turning his attention towards social media by posting his workout videos, becoming a social media influencer, training, coaching people, and ultimately turning into a philanthropist with DreamChasersNeverSleep non-profit organization (which interestingly was streamlined by his once viral video entitled the same name) King Crawford has indeed come a long way.
But, who would’ve thought that King Crawford would go beyond being just a football player and become an influential personality for the whole of the US to know. The much-known athlete is known for chasing his dreams right since his childhood days, and hence even when he went undrafted for the NFL in 2009, he slipped through the cracks and went ahead to choose different ways that could help him get nearer to his dreams. One of the viral videos in 2012 entitled DreamChasersNeverSleep, directed by Eric Gomes, again sparkled his dreams of playing professional football. His workout video on social media later helped him turn into a fitness influencer, gaining massive followers and prominence as an athlete, influencer, fitness coach, and philanthropist.
His training has changed and transformed the lives of many and has taken them to another level, building them into new people altogether. Starting his non-profit organization DreamChasersNeverSleep in 2015, he has now become dedicated to offering a 7v7 travelling football program, a youth football team playing in 7v7 tournaments, consisting of elementary, middle school and high school football players that helps athletes develop their skills in the offseason. They also offer seven free annual football camps for the youth of ages 6 – 18. They provide incredible opportunities for student-athletes to prepare for their football future and have so far helped over 3000 of them. Apart from this, King Crawford also offers an incredible fashion line to represent the sports and fitness culture. To gain more information, follow him on Instagram @k1ngcrawford.
