Advisory Committee

Vice President Athletes Charitable: A Division of United Charitable 

 Hannibal Navies is an Oakland, CA native who was raised with a legacy of service and a true understanding of serving your community. When the sudden death of his father changed his family dynamics, Hannibal was forced to adjust and look within for discipline. Despite attending two different high schools in both California and Illinois, he was awarded a scholarship to the University of Colorado. There he became a dean’s list student and was drafted by the Carolina Panthers in the 4th round in 1999.


In 2003 he started the Hannibal Navies Foundation which held football camps as its signature program to give back to truly deserving kids. After 9 years in the league, his love of teaching the game inspired him to launch the 360 Football Academy which develops student-athletes into leaders with comprehensive training programs and expert resources that support the development of exceptional athletic skills and academic knowledge.  In 2016, Navies joined The Trust a division of the NFL Players Association.  Hannibal is excited to take on the role of Vice President of Development at United Charitable. This role will offer him the opportunity to launch and spearhead Athletes Charitable and elevate the way professional athletes give back by empowering them to confidently run the charitable programs they have always wanted. Athletes Charitable is a membership service that allows athletes to utilize their platform, change communities and define their legacy. For more information, please visit
