Successful people are clear about who they are and where they’re headed and share that clarity with people around them so they know what the expectations are.
— Ricky Williams

To football fans Ricky Williams is known as a Heisman Trophy Winner and two-time All American at Texas. He's scored many touchdowns during his 12-year career in the NFL.
