Touchdowns for Desire

Hey sports fans and friends of Desire Street!

Guess what? I’m coming out of retirement and going back into pro football. Well, sort of…

You may have seen in the press that I’ve rounded up a team of other retired pros and former Gators to play in the new American Flag Football League U.S. Open of Football tournament. And a few friends have gotten my competitive juices flowing by pledging to donate to Desire Street a certain dollar amount for every touchdown our team scores during the tournament!

If you’d like to join us in this fun and worthy cause, please complete the form below. We’ll let you know how it comes out when the tournament is over (or our team gets eliminated, whichever comes first). By the way, there are a total of 7 games if we make it through the tournament — and so far, most teams are scoring between 2 and 7 (there’s that number again) touchdowns per game.

Thanks for considering this, and if we make it to the final rounds, catch us on the NFL Network between June 29th and the championship Ultimate Final game on July 19th!

God bless,

P.S. I’ll be keeping my friends up-to-date on the latest news on my Twitter and Instagram accounts, which you can find by clicking on the icons below.

"Touchdowns for Desire" Pledge

Thanks for considering a pledge to support "Touchdowns for Desire"!

Please let us know how to get back to you.

Danny, I'd like to pledge:
for every touchdown your team scores in the 2018 AFFL US Open of Football tournament
(The total cap on my donation amount.)

I understand that Desire Street will contact me after Danny's team wins the 2018 U.S. Open of Football Tournament, or is eliminated, so that I can fulfill my pledge. Further, if I have any questions or wish to make any changes to this pledge, I can contact Ebonie Sanders at
