During that time, the football team won the 1969 Little Dixie Conference Championship. He also sang in the Forest Baptist Church youth choir. He later attended Mississippi State where he played football and was an AP/UP SEC Defensive Player of the Week in 1972.

John David was an entrepreneur owning several businesses as well as being an ordained minister. He was a gifted singer, songwriter, and artist who was self taught and could develop any talent he set his mind to.
