Marcellus Wiley
“Marcellus Wiley, the former “NFL 10 year all-pro football player, currently co-hosts “SportsNation on “ESPN2 and a talk radio show on “ESPN” “710am” in Los Angeles. He was also the 2nd round draft pick coming out of “Columbia University by the “Buffalo Bills. That’s right, Columbia University. Wait a second, wasn’t that the Columbia University who, at the time, had lost 44 straight games! Yes, it was and yes, that’s where the power of Marcellus Wiley and his narrative to date begins; a narrative that he currently says “is far from the end.”

Marcellus grew up in Compton and learned from an early age how important it was to know his limitations and his strengths if he was going to move beyond his “Los Angeles neighborhood and take advantage of what the world had to offer. Through guidance and his athletic ability allowing him to play multiple sports, Marcellus was able to achieve just that. His choice to attend Columbia over top-notch “football schools underscores his desire to embrace adversity, to adopt a position of leadership, and to follow his own path.

Marcellus instinctively knew, that the keys to success were going to have to be built on the fundamental platform that included: surrounding himself with people who could challenge him in positive ways, having the “mindset that life is a marathon not a sprint, and using multiple “sports to help him form and cement not only opportunity, but his identity. Marcellus will undoubtedly influence how you view your own path as grit, determination and the school of hard knocks is inspiring.
