Welcome To The Pollack Family Foundation
David and Lindsey Pollack along with their kids, Nicholas (7) and Leah (5), created the Pollack Family Foundation on three pillars “Whole. Life. Health.” with the mission towards raising awareness against childhood obesity. The first pillar, “Whole”, is meant to represent each person through complete physical, mental, emotional, spiritual and social health. The second pillar, “Life”, represents a sense of vibrancy and energy in each person by not only emphasizing diet and exercise but also of “life-giving” through faith. The last pillar, “Health”, represents creating a lifestyle of excellent nutrition by taking care of our bodies and viewing them as a gift from above.
About David Pollack
Former NFL player and University of Georgia standout David Pollack joined ESPN in June 2009 as a college football analyst. Currently, David is an analyst on ESPN College Football Primetime (Thursdays) and on College GameDay. Pollack started his broadcast career in 2008, doing studio work for CBS and hosting a sports radio talk show in Atlanta for 790 The Zone. Since joining ESPN, Pollack has contributed to a variety of programming as a college football analyst, including ESPN’s College GameDay starting in 2011, as well as College Football Live, SportsCenter and all ESPN Bowl and CFP National Championship Coverage. As a defensive end at the University of Georgia, he was just the second Bulldog to be named a three-time All-American (Hershel Walker). In the 2005 NFL Draft, David was taken 17th overall by the Cincinnati Bengals but his NFL career was cut short after he broke a cervical vertebra in a game versus the Cleveland Browns in 2006. The Bengals then announced Pollack’s retirement before the 2008 season. At Georgia, Pollack’s accolades included 2002 SEC Player of the Year honors, the 2003 and 2004 Ted Hendricks Award, and, all in 2004, the Chuck Bednarik Award, Lombardi Award, Lott Trophy and SEC Defensive Player of the Year. His 36 sacks for the Bulldogs remain a school record. Pollack, who was born in New Brunswick, NJ, and raised in Snellville, GA, now resides in Athens with his wife Lindsey and their kids, Nicholas (7) and Leah (5).
