About Christion Abercrombie

Christion was born and raised in Atlanta, Georgia on July 4, 1998 and is the son of Derrick and Staci Abercrombie. He is the 2nd of two boys. Christion had an advantage of competing against his older brother D’Shawn and his brother friends. He attended Westlake High School, where he excelled as a student athlete on the football team. After receiving over 25 Division I scholarships, Christion decided to take his talents to University of Illinois.

Chrisiton had an exceptional career at University of Illinois, he played snaps as a freshman at middle linebacker and defensive end under Coach Lovie Smith. After his sophomore year, Christion decided to transfer to Tennessee State University to play under the leadership of Coach Rod Reed. Although, he was there for only a short period of time, he led his team with tremendous
leadership and made his mark in the community and on campus.

Through Christion’s life, it was his mission to maximize his platform and his leadership religiously and spiritually. For example, no matter the tribulations he went through, his favorite saying was, “Keep God First!” His favorite song is “Close” by Marvin Sapp, and that is how he continue to live his life.

As Christion moves on with life without football, he continues to inspire through his Christion Abercrombie Foundation. He enjoys spreading the word about his grace and mercy for the miracle in his life. Christion uses his platform to tell the world as he speaks at churches, schools and other organizations to bring awareness about traumatic brain injuries and God.
