About David Akers

Spiritual Life: 

Although David’s faith is in the saving grace given by our Lord, he needed his personal actions to line up with his profession of faith. David realized this fact and began seeking a deeper relationship with God and asked the Holy Spirit to guide his path, so he could work on being more like Jesus. David has been very vocal over the years both on and off the field about his faith in Jesus. He now enjoys traveling around preaching the Gospel in a relevant way that brings his testimony, football/life experiences to teach God’s biblical principles on how to have the Ultimate Victory in life. 

Career: 

Akers Photo 1 | Black Rock Retreat

David played twelve seasons for the Philadelphia Eagles – four times the length of an average NFL career – David played in more games in an Eagles uniform than anyone ever (188) and became the franchise’s all-time leading scorer (1,323). He was named to the Eagles 75th Anniversary All-Time Team, was voted as the kicker on the NFL 200’s All-Decade Team and set the NFL mark for points in a decade (1,169 from 2000-2009). 

After leaving the Eagles, David played two seasons in San Francisco and rewrote the NFL record book during that brief time. In 2011, he set an NFL record for points (without a TD) with 166, field goals in a season (44), and 4+ FG games (6). On September 9, 2012, at Green Bay, he tied the NFL record connecting on a 63-yard FG. (Now tied for second longest) David last played the full season in 2013 for the Detroit Lions. 

 The six-time Pro Bowler has set the bar high.  In 15 NFL season, his club has reached the playoffs ten times, played in seven NFC Championship games and two Super Bowls. Once the regular season ends David keeps on kicking. He owns the NFL playoff record with 19 consecutive FGMs and holds nearly every Pro Bowl kicking record: Most points (57), Longest FG (53), and Most appearances (6; second behind Morten Andersen).
