WEIGH IN – Should T. Will Quit His Day Job?
Growing up in the Saxon Homes Projects, T-Will could rarely find stability as a child. With his parents’ divorce at the age of 12 and an unexpected move to a nearby trailer park, he was forced into becoming a man sooner than expected. T-Will became no stranger to responsibility and hard work as he help raise his two younger brothers until high school.
After years of playing football, T-Will was offered an athletic scholarship to Auburn University in 2001. He became the first person in his family to attend college. T-Will attend Auburn from 2001 to 2005 obtaining a Bachelor’s degree in Criminology and Criminal Justice with a minor in Adult Education. He became one of Auburn most outstanding linebackers. T-Will went on to play in the NFL for the Atlanta Falcons from 2006 to 2008. He was pushed into shortening his career after having three herniated discs in his back. The fighter in T-Will knew that the end of one chapter was not the end of the story.
Hidden behind the born athlete was a poet and song writer. T-Will started writing poetry at the age of nine. Inspired by the raps of DMX, T.I., and 50 cent, in December 2008, he opened another chapter that others never expected. After years of independent work, music by T-Will began to flood the southern streets of Alabama, Georgia, and South Carolina. T-Will is currently still grinding to make his music career kick off. He has created nearly 100 songs in the past two years, including the new hit anthem for the Auburn football team, “Tiger Walk.” He is the current defensive graduate coach at Auburn University and pursuing a Masters’ degree in Higher Education. T-Will has a story to tell. He has the vision to project. There is no way he will even think about closing the book now. T-Will is pushing to affect the lives of those not just in one region, but the entire country. His music will attract the wise, the women, and the workers of this nation.
