Levi Wallace

"Each man should give what he has decided in his heart to give, not reluctantly or under compulsion, for God loves a cheerful giver."

- 2 Corinthians 9:7

Levi grew up in a disciplined household with his mother and father, Wendy and Walter Wallace, in Tucson, Arizona. As the son of two veterans who served in the United States Air Force, he was expected to work hard and show leadership from an early age. From the age of seven, Levi would begin playing football and run track and field in the off season to build his speed, endurance, and mobility.

Levi demonstrated to be a dedicated student athlete through his youth while on and off the field. Despite developing into a skilled player at Tucson High School, he ended his high school career as a zero-start recruit and received no offers.

As he assessed his opportunities for college and with high school graduation on the horizon, his father became ill. Walter Wallace had been diagnosed with Amyotrophic Lateral Sclerosis (ALS), also commonly known as Lou Gehrig’s disease. Levi would make the decision to attend the University of Alabama and join the powerhouse football program as a walk-on in honor of his father’s favorite collegiate football team. While attending school, his father’s health would continue to decline. Despite great efforts by doctors to stabilize his father’s health, Walter Wallace would pass away the night before his first spring game at the University of Alabama. The news reached Levi the next morning, despite his family’s efforts to reveal the distressing news until after the game. He was heartbroken, but he believed the greatest way to pay homage to his father was to run out of the tunnel at Bryant- Denny Stadium and give his all in the game, fulfilling his father’s dream.

Before the start of his junior year, Levi would receive a full-ride athletic scholarship from the Alabama Athletic Program. Over the next two years, he evolved into an all SEC cornerback for the Crimson Tide. He was an instrumental player of Alabama’s dominant defense during his final season there, helping the team to win the College Football Playoff National Championship in the 2017-2018 season.

His athletic performance and contributions to the Alabama Football Program would grant him the opportunity to be invited to the 2018 NFL Combine, where he would have an exceptional performance in front of NFL coaches and staff.

On May 1, 2018, Levi signed with the Buffalo Bills. After many practices and several roster cuts, he would officially become a full time starting cornerback for the Buffalo Bills Team. He has held his starting position for four seasons now and is a two-time AFC East Champion. His defensive team leads as the number one defense in the National Football League.

On March 17, 2022, Levi signs with the Pittsburgh Steelers as a free agent. After recording 219 tackles, 6 interceptions, and 10 pass deflections for the Bills. He continues his career with the Pennsylvania team in this new 2022 season. 

Beyond Blue and Red

The Levi Wallace Foundation

Mission Statement

To support efforts of existing programs to directly build fundamental life skills amongst the youth and those in underserved communities through the use of sports and academics. Emphasizing the importance of discipline, team work, and dedication to enrich and promote self-efficacy.

Vision Statement

Helping to bridge the gap in marginalized communities by providing the youth with impactful opportunities, resources, and programs that will not only maximize their potential, but directly highlight their growth.  We hope to create a model of actively giving back to others through meaningful ways.

I have always found enjoyment and fulfillment in giving back to others. It has provided me with the opportunity to connect with a myriad of people from different backgrounds and most importantly foster meaningful relationships with amazing people. When creating my foundation, I wanted to be intentional about providing beneficial resources for the youth and others in underserved communities.

Giving the right type of help to those in need and to provide kids with more opportunities to obtain athletic/academic scholarships and visibility from college sports programs.

The Levi Wallace Foundation is bridging the gap between what has been done and building on what still needs to be done to create a brighter future for the next generation and the community.”
