CLARK, NJ – Clark’s Crusader Athletic Leadership Council held their first meeting of the year of Tuesday, Oct. 25 with guest speaker Chris B. Williams.
Williams, a positive energy coach, motivational speaker, entrepreneur and mentor, came to discuss leadership as it pertains to all student athletes.
Born and raised in Philadelphia, Williams was an All-City and All-State basketball player, before receiving a full scholarship to Manhattan College where he led his team to NCAA tournament, winning the MAAC Championships in 1993. Today, Williams draws on these enriching experiences in his personal development programs through his company Williams Unlimited Inc.
Community involvement is a priority for Chris, and in 2013, he co-founded the Williams & Bullock Basketball Academy, an organization that helps aspiring athletes be better players and better people. In addition, he oversees a group called Keeping It Real, which helps teenagers connect spiritual ideals with current events. A lifelong basketball lover, Chris is also the voice of the Manhattan Jaspers, broadcasting all of the men and women’s televised and radio games.
“The C.A.L.C. would like to thank Chris Williams for coming in to share his thoughts on leadership,” Arthur L. Johnson High School Athletic Director Gus Kalikas said. “His vast experience was not only interesting, but useful in our quest to develop better leaders amongst our student athletes.”
