Biography

The Chargers’ 2015 Walter Payton Man of the Year and Special Teams Player of the Year, Darrell Stuckey does as much to improve people’s lives off the field as he does wreaking havoc when he’s on it.

On the field, Stuckey was a fourth-alternate to the Pro Bowl in 2015 after ranking second on the team in special teams tackles. Over the past five seasons, he’s recorded 59 special teams tackles while regularly facing double and triple-teams. In 2012, Stuckey led the NFL with six punts downed inside the 20.

A two-time Special Teams Player of the Year (2013 & 2015), a four-time Team Captain (2012-15) and a Pro Bowl specialist in 2015, one of Stuckey’s main devotions is the fight against human trafficking. In each of the last two years, he donated one of his NFL game checks to the nonprofit Not For Sale. Their primary fundraising program, “Throwdown,” helps protect women and children from trafficking and slavery.

Stuckey is one of the Chargers’ most-active players in the community. Since 2013, he has hosted a football camp at Bishop Ward High School in Kansas City and since 2014, he’s hosted a similar camp at San Diego’s Westview High. In 2014, he hosted a free football youth clinic at Free State High School in Lawrence, Kansas, and he sponsors the K.C. United Pop Warner Football League in conjunction with USA Football.

In 2015, the Kansas City, Kansas School District presented Stuckey with the Reason to Believe Award, which is given to alumni who have made a positive impact in the community.

Stuckey is an active member of the Fellowship of Christian Athletes. For the last two years, he’s hosted their annual golf tournament in San Diego.

Stuckey’s community presence is in high demand. This year, he served as a celebrity judge for programs in California that raised awareness for mental illness and suicide prevention. And last year, he was asked to be the featured guest speaker at the Marine Aviation Summit, and he was asked to speak on a panel at another event about race in sports.

A native of Kansas City, Kansas, Stuckey was raised by a single mother, Michele Foulks. Stuckey has three brothers and three sisters. His younger sister, Denae, played basketball at Iowa State.

Stuckey and wife, Lacie, have a son, Jayton James, and a daughter, Kinsley Ann.
