#204 – Donald Penn

The Life of Dad Show - Episode 204 - Donald Penn

Tommy Riles and Art Eddy talk about how a squirrel wreaked havoc in the Riles house this past week. You get to learn how Tommy solved the problem and why he’s a bit mad at his dog. Then, the guys bring on Oakland Raiders offensive tackle, Donald Penn.

Early in his eight year run with the Buccaneers, Donald Penn was making history. In 2008, he helped lead the offense to 5,456 total yards, the highest single-season total in franchise history and led the offense to 361 points, the second highest team total in team history. Donald had an impressive 2010 season and only surrendered 3.5 sacks for the whole season which guided his way onto the 2011 Pro Bowl roster. After starting for 92 consecutive games for the Buccaneers, it is no wonder that the Oakland Raiders offered him a two year deal after his contract ended in 2014. In his first season with the Raiders, Donald started all 16 games and even had his third reception and ran it for his second career touchdown. At the end of the 2015 NFL season, Donald has started in 140 consecutive NFL games, an astonishing number.

Donald started his own foundation called The Donald Penn Foundation in 2011 to help inner-city and low income youth in Los Angeles make positive, life-changing decisions by providing education incentives, scholarship opportunities and support during the holidays. The Donald Penn Foundation also hosts an annual football camp at his high school in Playa Del Rey and invites hundreds of local kids out for a day filled with football drills and training for local youth, who will have the opportunity to be coached by professional athletes.

Donald‘s charming personality has always found him in the spotlight and can be seen on the hottest red carpets and celebrity events. The media flocks to Donald and his playful personality and has been featured on the NFL Network, Jim Rome, CBS Sports, Fox Sports, Revolt TV, ESPN, Tanked on Animal Planet, Punk’d Spinoff -Sack’d, Esquire TV, Cuisine Noir and many more!

Donald and his wife Dominique have two boys and a baby girl.
