Marquez Williams 

Hard work. Discipline. Tenacity. Grit.


Those are the core values that helped propel professional football player Marquez Williams from his humble days as a high school ball player with no offers to play at the collegiate level to being one of the world’s foremost elite athletes in American football.

In the US, more than 5.2 million people over the age of six will take to the fields to play tackle football. For young boys, more than a million of them will continue playing into their high school years. Despite their efforts and their hard work, fewer than a half percent of these players will ever play professional football and reach the level of success that Marquez Williams, his teammates, and his colleagues have reached.

Mr. Williams knows that he is a rare outlier, at the cusp of a legendary story, separate from the normal course of even the most passionate, talented and dedicated high school athlete.

He has perfected the art and science of using discipline to reach his physical goals, as many young athletes do. But he has also learned the value of building strong relationships and heeding the advice of trusted leaders and mentors.

In 2017, Mr. Williams reached a new level of success beyond what he achieved as a collegiate player. He was a 7th Round NFL Draft Pick as a fullback for the Jacksonville Jaguars. He later played with the Cleveland Browns.

Through the years, Marquez Williams has worked to cultivate key relationships with league coaches, players and administrators that continue to help him, and now his clients, reach greater and greater levels of personal and professional success. He started Classic City Sports Consulting as a way to use his experiences to benefit talented, up-and-coming athletes.

The mission of Classic City Sports Consulting is simple: To evaluate, educate, elevate, and enhance the performance of young athletes to help them succeed in achieving meaningful goals. The mission is borne from Williams’ own experiences with his mentors who guided him in the best ways to reach his professional goals. The young man who had no offers to play football in college made it onto a Division 2 team, then a Division 1 team before landing that coveted spot as an NFL Draft Pick.
