Biography

Goldmine

    • In June of 2017, Armstead returned to his hometown of Sacramento to hold his second annual free youth football camp. The camp was held in Elk Grove, California and sponsors made it possible for 200 scholarships to be offered to interested kids. The kids participated in both football and conditioning drills with the players and then were allowed to ask questions to discuss not only football, but school, healthy choices, and other topics. Armstead’s goal was to provide campers with a unique experience on the football field, as well as insight into the hard work and dedication that are needed to make it to the NFL. “I want the kids to enjoy themselves while also coming away learning that they can do whatever they put their mind to,” said Armstead. “I want to teach them the things that helped me get where I am now like the importance of education, work ethic, and faith.”
    • In December of 2016, Armstead partnered with his local church to spread holiday cheer. Armstead bought more than 100 toys at Target and gave them away to children at the UC Davis Medical Center.

  • In December of 2016, Armstead partnered with his local church to spread holiday cheer. Armstead bought more than 100 toys at Target and gave them away to children at the UC Davis Medical Center.
  • Armstead’s brother, Armond, was forced to retire before ever playing a down in the NFL.  After playing collegiately at USC, Armond became an All-Star for the Toronto Argonauts of the Canadian Football League, helping the team win the league’s 100th Grey Cup. He went on to sign with the New England Patriots in 2013, but medical issues forced him to hang up his cleats. “The biggest thing he has told me through this process is, ‘at the end of the day, it’s just football.’ Having a brother who played at this level makes everything less overwhelming.” 
  • During Super Bowl 50’s Media Day, Armstead joined Sacramento’s ABC10 sports team as a reporter to learn what it is like to cover NFL players during one of the most hectic events of the year.  Held at SAP Center in San Jose, Armstead interviewed former teammates, fans, media members and Miss Universe. “It’s like a feeding frenzy - everyone running around, and being part of that frenzy was a unique experience,” said Armstead during the event.
  • If Armstead wasn’t in the NFL, he would be playing basketball. He was a three-year starter in basketball at Pleasant Grove High School in Sacramento and played two years at the University of Oregon before focusing solely on football for the 2014 season. He entered his high school senior season listed as the number three prospect in NorCalPrep.com’s Top 40 rankings for the class of 2012. “A big part of the recruiting pitch from Oregon was they were going to let me play two sports. We only lost 5 games during my time there. I wanted to go somewhere with the chance to win and be a part of something special.”
  • For Armstead, the NFL Draft process was a whirlwind tour. He went straight from the National Championship Game to San Diego to prepare for the NFL Combine and then to Sacramento for the Draft itself. However, his favorite part of the process was being drafted by a team so close to his hometown. “It’s a dream come true. I’m blessed to be in this situation. Not a lot of other people are that close to home. Being able to play home games in front of my family is perfect for me.”
