Meet Bradie James

From his native Monroe, LA, Bradie James has always been a leader, unafraid to tackle any challenge or obstacle whether on the football field — or the boardroom. He was chosen as a National Scholar Athlete by the National Football Foundation and graduated from LSU in 2003 with a degree in criminology.

In 2003, the Dallas Cowboys made James their 4th pick of the draft. He came to Dallas as a backup linebacker, but after becoming a free agent in 2012, James signed with the Houston Texans. He retired from the NFL as a Dallas Cowboy on May 6, 2014.

James has taken some hits in life on and off the field. The death of both of his parents, three months apart was one of the hardest hits he’s taken in his life. After voluntarily maintaining his silence about losing both of his parents the first four years of his professional career in the NFL; he finally decided to start sharing  his story with the public

The death of his mother influenced James’ decision to establish Foundation 56, to help stamp out breast cancer. Established in 2007, James uses the foundation to help raise money in the fight against the often fatal disease.

Founded by Family

Foundation 56, a faith-based organization is dedicated to expanding and enhancing the quality of life of women, men and their families who have been directly & indirectly impacted by breast cancer. Foundation 56 provides access to breast cancer services throughout the country.

More About Bradie James

Making LSU History

After graduating, James headed a few miles south to Baton Rouge to the picturesque campus of Louisiana State University. He quickly made his mark there as a member of the football team and as a high-achieving student. While playing for the Tigers, James was a two-time All-SEC selection and left LSU as the school’s second-leading tackler. He was also named an All-American his senior season, after making the switch from weakside lineback to middle linebacker. He was on the All-SEC Academic Honor roll. He graduated from LSU in 2003 with a degree in criminology.

An Influential Innovator

But as much as James has accomplished, he hasn’t forgotten his humble roots. He has personally invested an endless amount of effort educating others about the importance of effectively utilizing services and resources to maintain a quality life. tion

A Game Changing Humanitarian

Named after his Dallas Cowboys jersey number, Foundation 56, a faith-based organization is dedicated to expanding and enhancing the quality of life of women, men and their families who have been directly and indirectly impacted by breast cancer. Foundation 56 provides access to breast cancer services and resources throughout the country.
