Kelvin Edwards is a proud alumnus of Liberty University and served as the Executive Vice President of Management Efficiencies & Diversity at the university. He is a dedicated philanthropist who is passionate about helping those in need and giving back to all communities. During his college years, he even started his own Big Brother foundation.
Edwards’ journey to success is a testament to his perseverance and determination to overcome poverty. He excelled as an All-American football player at Liberty University, achieving his childhood dream of playing for the Dallas Cowboys as a wide receiver. At Liberty, he played a pivotal role in the athletics program’s move to the NCAA ranks and had a star-studded four-year career (1982-85). After graduation, he was drafted by the New Orleans Saints in the fourth round of the 1986 NFL Draft and went on to play for the Dallas Cowboys from 1987-89 before an injury ended his pro career.
Edwards’ contributions to Liberty University were recognized when he was inducted into the Liberty Athletics Hall of Fame in 2009. His No. 83 jersey was also retired last October during Liberty’s Homecoming football game, a fitting tribute to his remarkable achievements both on and off the field.
