Demario, a native of Brandon, Miss., was a three-sport athlete at Brandon High School where he played football, basketball and ran track. In 2007, Demario was recruited by Arkansas State University where he redshirted his first season. From 2008-2011, he played linebacker and was a Phil Steele's All-Sun Belt Conference selection, twice named Sun Belt Conference Defensive Player of the Week, First Team All-Sun Belt Conference, 2010 Preseason All-Sun Belt Conference, Rotary Lombardi Award Watch List, Preseason First Team All-Sun Belt Conference, and College Football Performance Awards National Linebacker of the Year Watch List. He graduated with his undergraduate degree in 2011.
Demario was a third round draft pick in 2012 by the New York Jets. After four seasons, he became a free agent and went to the Cleveland Browns where he was installed as Cleveland's middle inside linebacker and was selected a team captain for a young Browns' defense. After one year, he returned the Jets where just finished his sixth season in the NFL.
Demario is founder of Devoted Dreamers Academy and uses the off season to help reduce summer learning loss near his hometown in Jackson, Miss. Working with his own nonprofit led Demario to become more involved in United Way and during the spring of 2017, he served as an Extern with United Way Worldwide, as part of the NFLPA (National Football League Players Association) collaboration with United Way.
