William has had a very challenging past. He grew up in Atlantic City New Jersey as an orphan, having lost both his mother and father to the HIV virus. His father and brother both spent considerable time in prison and his father often battled drug abuse.
As a young person William determined in his heart that he would never get involved with drugs or alcohol. But, after great success on the football field, William still found himself empty, without a family and struggling with depression and the wounds of his past. After William signed a multi-million dollar contract with the Cleveland Browns, his depression got worse . His life grew out of control. He was later suspended by the NFL for drugs, drinking and DUI's. He was also involved with violent domestic conflicts.
William's life radically changed for the better in 2006. He is a new man. He had a life changing experience with his character and faith, and now he has given himself to being a great father, great husband and an inspiration to young people all over the nation.
He married his high school sweetheart. They now have a beautiful home, with 8 beautiful children of their very own.
William tells everyone, " You can't change your past , but you can change your future!"
