"Fast Willie" Parker made a name for himself with his explosive speed.

 

HIGH SCHOOL 

Willie was a two-time all-conference and all-region hornoree in football and track. and set the record for longest run in 2a championship history, running 79 yards. 

UNIVERSITY OF NORTH CAROLINA 

strength & conditioning records like a 40-yard dash speed of 4.31 solidified willie as the fastest Running Back to play for the University

National football league 

after jerome bettis was injured in 2005, parker got the starting job as steelers running back. in his first year as a starter, he rushed for over 1,200 yards, being only the second undrafted running back to accomplish this in the history of the nfl. after six seasons (and an explosive 75-yard run in the super bowl), willie retired from the nfl and decided to pursue other passions, including coaching/training and community outreach.

 

How did he do it?

Working hard. #ALLINALLDAY
