Levar Fisher #52
Florida State University.
Drafted into the NFL by the Arizona Cardinals in 2002, Levar Fisher uses the same strength and fortitude that got him into the NFL to now inspire people of all ages through his motivational speaking.
“What I’ve learned on the field is to never allow anyone to claim my attention…except the one that I’ve already tackled in my mind. I’ve learned that real power doesn’t come from the heart or even from lifting weights – it comes from placing belief in yourself and trusting your maker.”
Four-year starter for the NC State Wolfpack, Levar was the ACC’s Defensive Player of the Year in 2000 and a 1st team All-ACC selection in1999, 2000 and 2001. Levar was a pre-season candidate for the Lombardi Award. He led the nation in tackles with 15.1 per game and was a finalist for the Bronko Nagurski Trophy, given to the nation’s top defensive player. Fisher finished his career with 12 sacks, 9 fumbles caused and a school record of 492 tackles. Fisher was a Consensus 1st team All-American LB in 2000, 2001 and achieved his greatest honor as an Academic All- American.
After playing three seasons in NFL, Levar was released from the Arizona Cardinals in 2005. He was signed by the New Orleans Saints in 2006 where he suffered a terrible knee injury and thus retired from the NFL in 2007.
“I’m not on the field anymore, but I’m passionately using everything I have to help my team win, and my team now…is simply everyone within earshot.”
Having spoken in 45 states to date, Levar is a recognized powerful motivational speaker who leaves an imprint on lives across the nation. He is also the author of two inspirational books and currently working on his third book.
Levar and his wife, Jacinta are proud parents of two beautiful daughters. They reside in the Chicagoland area, where they have established the headquarters for their own speaking and events firm and a self-publishing company.
