Bret Lockett

The multi talented Bret Lockett, known for his three years with the New England Patriots, is more similar to a brand than a star athlete. Although Bret’s career in the NFL has been regrettably shrouded in injury thus far, he has been scoring touchdowns in other areas. Lockett’s charm and Adonis-like physique has opened doors into his modeling career and has seen immense success in fitness and fashion in many national magazines, including the likes of Sports Illustrated and covers of InTouch and Krave.

In addition to his presence on the field and in media, Lockett has made quite the presence to the children of the city where he grew up – Diamond Bar. The goal of the Bret Lockett’s “Looking Forward” foundation is to inspire and motivate young teenagers and adults to achieve greatness both in and outside of the classroom, which of course he accomplished through competitive sports. It’s no wonder that Bret Lockett and his foundation most recently sponsored the Diamond Bar Youth Football/Cheer Camp alongside Snoop Dogg in June of this year. Lockett also supports the NOH8 campaign against homosexual hate, and recently opened-up about his bullying past to anti-bullying awareness website, BullyVille.com.


And if that is all not enough, more recently Brett has partnered with rapidly growing application software Mobli, which has grown from a million users to three million in the last few months. Lockett’s most current venture is into the realm of music. In some cases this kind of additional skill might simply come with the territory of being a brand so-to-speak, but Lockett had music running through his veins before he ever strapped on pads and cleats. With his cousin being the late Grammy Hall of Fame inductee Etta James and his uncle the late R & B singer Vernon Green of the Medallions, he certainly has a great head start in the music industry.

Much like his foundation, we are “looking forward” to see all the damage Bret will do both on and off the field in the future!
