Damon Arnette’s passion for football came early in life. He started playing competitively in St. Thomas Aquinas High School, where he helped lead the team into state championship. This is quite an impressive feat when you consider that he also graduated as an honor student. He definitely knows how to balance his brain and brawn.
His passion for sports only grew as the years passed. While playing for Ohio State in college, Arnette was named second team All-Big Ten at the end of his final NCAA season. He also got his first career touchdown during that season while playing with a broken wrist (pictured left). Damon really gave meaning to the saying “No Pain, No Gain” in that life-altering season of his life.
His accomplishments were definitely noticed. Immediately after graduating, Damon was drafted by the Las Vegas Raiders in the first round with the 19th overall pick of the 2020 NFL Draft. There is so much potential in him, and we’re looking forward to good surprises from this blazing hot rookie.
