In 1987, Fred Stokes was drafted into the National Football League where he would spend the next ten years playing Defensive End for the Los Angeles/St. Louis Rams, Washington Redskins, and the New Orleans Saints. Fred had the awesome privilege of playing in and winning Super Bowl XXVI with the 1991 Washington Redskins against the Buffalo Bills. In that game, Fred recorded two and half sacks, one forced fumble and one fumble recovery. Fred’s teammates affectionately labeled him “Big Play Stokes” because of his knack for making the “BIG PLAY” at just the right time of a ball game.
In 2007, Fred established Fred Stokes Foods. Their signature item is “Fred Stokes Sausage.” It is sold in select retail markets in Southeast Georgia, North and Central Florida. It is currently distributed by three of the top distribution companies in the country.
In addition to promoting his brand of Sausage, Fred uses both his life experiences and his time spent on the football field as he speaks to different organizations around the country, including our service men and women. In the midst of all of the travel, Fred found the time to write and publish his autobiography entitled “The Bridge That Brought Me Over.”
Fred and his wife Regina have three sons and currently live in Orlando, FL
