Perry Williams    

Retired Superbowl Winning Football Player

On a team of stars, Perry was an unsung hero and silent leader of the New York Giants Football team for eleven seasons (1983-1994) as the starting right corner back for one of the most storied and dynamic defenses in the National football league history, culminating with two NFL super bowl Championships (1986-1987) and (1990-1991). Impressively, Perry holds the record for the most games played as a defensive back (corner) in history of the Giants- a testament to his dedication and consistency.

Perhaps Perry’s greatest accomplishment as a New York Giant, was not his all-pro honors or Super bowl championships, but rather, that he was benefactor and now a director of outreach programs for the New York Giants Degree Completion Program at Fairleigh Dickinson University, which has since become the model adopted by the National Football League and its member teams for the benefit of its players. In addition to being the director of business development of Gator Communications Group LLC printing firm; Perry is an adjunct professor at Fairleigh Dickinson University, teaching leadership classes.

Perry was selected as a recipient of the Sports Ethic Fellow Humanitarian Award (1995). Alex Baker Memorial Humanitarian Award (2011). Trey Whitfield foundation leadership Award (2012) and Platinum Minds Community Leaders Award (2014).

During his professional football career off-season, Perry earned a Criminal Justice/Sociology Bachelors of Arts degree from North Carolina State University and a Masters of Public Administration degree from Fairleigh Dickinson University. This is a feat that is virtually unheard of in the lucrative world of professional sports.

Among the companies that Perry Williams has been a corporate motivational speaker and spokesman for: Exxon/Mobil, Starbucks Coffee, IBM, United Parcel service and Verizon Wireless. He has lectured at hundreds of Schools, Colleges, and Universities as well as other respected organizations such as the United Way Foundation.
