Texans rookie wide receiver, Will Fuller, is just the latest the latest of NFL professionals working with Rischad Whitfield. Whitfield is the founder of "Footwork King", where he specializes in footwork, speed and agility.

Whitfield already has an impressive roster of athletes he trains.

"Training Le'Veon Bell, from the Steelers, Antonio Brown. Emmanuel Sanders," Whitfield said. "From the Texans, Will, work with DeAndre Hopkins, AJ Bouye, Kurtis Drummond, Keith Mumphrey, Jalen Strong, DJ Swearinger before he got traded, Brandon Marshall."

In fact he expects that roster to keep growing.

"Odell Beckham reached out to me and he is coming after OTA's for a couple of days," Whitfield said.

All this started by just training neighborhood kids and a couple of parents decided to help him get a field.
