It is no secret that Ahman Green is a rabid Batman fan. He has a vast collection of Batman memorabilia and a Batman tattoo — and he can even be found from time to time attending comic-book conventions, dressed as the Caped Crusader.
Odds are that if Batman were real, then Batman would shed his cape and don an Ahman Green jersey out of mutual admiration for the Green Bay Packers’ all-time rushing leader who is as much of an inspiration off the field as he was on.
When the proud parent of five isn’t relaxing with his family, he generously lends his support to the Make-A-Wish Foundation, the Boys And Girls Club and the Children’s Hospital of Wisconsin and Nebraska, just to name a few. He has also served as a mentor at Seahawks Academy in Seattle, providing special education and counseling to “at-risk” students. Recently, he founded The Ahman Green Foundation, a charity focusing on cancer research and youth development.
When he retired from the NFL in August 2011, he closed the book on an impressive career that started in high school, where he earned all-American and Player of the Year honors, along with two Academic All-State awards.
Green came into his own at the University of Nebraska. He was named Big 8 Conference Freshman of the Year after breaking the school’s single-season rushing record. He was a three-year starter and three-time all-conference performer who was ranked No. 8 on Bleacher Report’s listing of “Twenty Greatest Nebraska Cornhuskers of All Time.”
Upon finishing his junior season at Nebraska, Green answered the call from the big time. He entered the NFL draft, and the Seattle Seahawks selected him in the third round. From there, Green was traded to the Green Bay Packers — and that is when the world quickly learned who Ahman Green was.
From the time he joined the Packers in 2000 through the end of the 2004 season, Green gained more yards from scrimmage (9,036) and more rushing yards (6,848) than any other NFL player. In 2003, he broke the Green Bay franchise record by rushing for 1,883 yards during the regular season. He made four consecutive Pro Bowl trips and became one of only two players in NFL history to have two touchdown runs of 90 yards or more.
When he retired, Ahman Green had accomplished more than he could possibly have fathomed. He had achieved the dream: A record-breaking professional career, big-dollar contracts and lucrative endorsement deals. It would have been very easy for Green to use those accomplishments to settle into a life of leisure, outside the public eye, knowing that his future was well taken care of.
But Green didn’t do that. Instead, he chose to become the type of person who practices what he preaches. For instance: Instead of simply telling children how important it was to get an education, Ahman Green returned to the place where it all began—the University of Nebraska—and completed his college education, earning a degree in geography.
In addition to his degree work, he also took graduate level courses at The University of Green Bay. Now, he is a certified personal trainer who lives and promotes a healthy lifestyle; he was awarded a D1 sports training franchise (joining other D1 franchise owners such as Peyton Manning and Tim Tebow); he is part of the Green Bay Blizzard Football ownership group; he has volunteered as a coach/mentor at Oak Creek and De Pere high Schools, plus Southwest High School’s baseball team.
So, what does a big-hearted, highly ambitious, highly talented Green Bay Packers legend do next? Well, Ahman Green has set his sights on Hollywood.
Naturally, Green would love to play the role of Batman, but until Hollywood feels that he is ready to fill that role, Green will continue to do what he has always done: Work hard for what he wants.
The budding actor was selected from 150 applicants to participate in the inaugural NFL Hollywood Boot Camp at Universal Studios. He has landed roles in Rob Schneider’s “Big Stan” and the independent film “Chester McPhail," and is serving as an associate producer — along with a starring role — in a film tentatively titled “Full Control.”
As Green continues to work his way up the Hollywood ladder, he enthusiastically welcomes corporate endorsements (television, radio, print, Web) and invitations to participate in other custom marketing programs.
He has built a long list of credits in television, including experience as a sideline analyst with the Big Ten Network, a panelist on the “Dancing With The Stars” wrap-up show on WTMJ-TV in Milwaukee, co-host of the Packers Locker Room Show and the Packers Pre-Game Show carried statewide on CBS affiliates, and regular interviews on local, regional and national radio.
Ahman Green’s success on the football field, in the classroom and in the world of charity — blended with his strong work ethic and likeability — make him the ideal sports legend to represent companies in events including product licensing, consumer promotions and sweepstakes, client hospitality events, media interviews, personal appearances, non-profit events, sports camps and speaking engagements.
