A few years ago the founder of the DFE was on youtube when he came across a youtube about Jay Demerit. Immediately sold on the youtube which was actually a movie trailer about the life of Jay Demerit.
After reaching out and meeting Jay’s best friend and co director of the movie Nick Lewis, the DFE offered our assistance as a supporters group here in Dallas to help promote the movie. The movie was not only just about getting Jay’s story out there but it was about promoting an American who had made the sport better in our country.
The DFE joined forces with American Outlaws Dallas Fort Worth and helped launch a campaign here in Dallas to raise money for the Jay Demerit story. Our campaign of course was just a small chapter in an already huge campaign that the Jay Demerit Story was getting ready to launch.
“I remember when I got the call from Nick Lewis. He said that they were tossing around the idea of using a kickstarter to help fund the movie. They felt that with the use of groups like us and the social networking world we could all come together to raise the money to make this film a reality.” -DFE Pres
The Jay Demerit Story caught national and world wide attention, and eventually met it’s goal of raising the money needed to fund the movie!
Till this day Nick Lewis and Jay Demerit continue to show their gratitude to everyone in the world that helped fund this movie. They also continue to show their appreciation and respect to the DFE. There is no finer professional athlete that I have ever met. Jay loves his fans, and his actions on and off the pitch speak volume to his character.
Jay Demerit is not just another professional athlete. He is a symbol of what being an American is all about. Jay went to England and became a professional footballer without any money, any connections, and really without any hope. He fought his way through the lower divisions in England and eventually found himself playing in the EPL.
Jay then went on to start as the starting center back for the United States in the 2010 World Cup. Jay has a career full of remarkable matches, including amazing performances against Spain when the USA defeated #1 Spain in the 2009 Confederations cup. His most recent performance was in the 2012 MLS All star match where he helped lead our MLS players in a victory over Chelsea Football Club.
For the second year in a row Jay took time out of his day to come hang out with the DFE & AO Dallas members!
