Early years

Mayberry attended Floresville High School in Floresville, Texas and lettered in football and basketball there.

College career

At Texas A&I University, Mayberry was a consensus Division II All-America selection and a two-time All-Lone Star Conference pick at left tackle.[1]

Professional career

Mayberry decided to retire during the 2006 season while he was on the injured reserve list.[2]

Personal life

In 1996, Mayberry contributed $100,000 to Eagles Youth Partnership to finance the Eagles Eye Mobile, a mobile unit giving free eye examinations to underprivileged youth in the Philadelphia region. This can partially be contributed to a condition Mayberry developed as a child, as he has amblyopia in one eye. He is also known to have established a frozen water ice franchise called Jayberry's Water Ice around 2003.[3]

Mayberry became a Jehovah's Witness in 2002 after first being introduced to the faith by his wife in 1999.[4]
