One of the happiest and saddest day of my life

1st Round Draft Pick, 21st overall.

However, my parents never saw me reach the NFL. David Sr. died of kidney failure at 48 on June 2, 2002, after suffering from diabetes for many years. Barbara, 46, died Dec. 16, of complications following a stroke.

Instead of going to New York for the NFL Draft, I decided to honor my parents and hold a draft viewing fundraiser

This is when I started fundraising in my parents memory, The Vince Wilfork Foundation.foundation_old_old
