Damone Clark (Dallas)


Damone Clark, hailing from Louisiana, is a linebacker for the Dallas Cowboys. As a professional athlete, he prioritizes nutrition to maintain his peak physical condition, and a balanced diet, rich in dairy, is an important part of his regimen.


Damone has even relied on dairy - specifically chocolate milk - to bolster his bone health during recovery from an injury. On training days, he indulges in protein-packed omelets loaded with spinach, ham, and LOTS cheese. For a sweet fix, he loves cereals like Cinnamon Toast Crunch, Fruity Pebbles, and Captain Crunch, along with cookies and cream or butter pecan ice cream for dessert.


Beyond the gridiron, Damone is deeply committed to giving back. Growing up, he spent years playing for the South Baton Rouge Jags in his hometown, which left an indelible mark on him. Damone remains actively involved with the team, dedicating time during the offseason to work closely with them.

Cam Jordan (New Orleans)


Cam Jordan, an accomplished defensive end for the New Orleans Saints, boasts a remarkable 14-year tenure in the NFL.


Known for his upbeat demeanor and boundless energy, Cam has actively championed dairy and nutrition initiatives for numerous years.

Samaje Perine (Denver)

From melted cheese sandwiches to protein-packed shakes, dairy is always a staple in the Perine household.


Beyond the gridiron, Samaje is a strong advocate for underprivileged families and single-parent homes. His interest in community outreach also aligns with supporting hunger relief programs and promoting dairy donations to food banks.
