ABOUT COACH DOM
Coach Dom is a top leadership speaker. His mission is to help students, athletes, and employees create a championship mindset and a championship environment that leads to individual and group success.
Dominique Williams is a former NFL running back from Bridgeton, New Jersey, who has inspired thousands with his passion and dedication to be his best both on and off the field. He played in the NFL for the Minnesota Vikings, Arizona Cardinals, and the New York Jets. He also played in the CFL (Canadian Football League) for the Calgary Stampeders. From an early age, Dominique knew that he wanted to play football, and he poured his heart and soul into the game. Throughout time, his love for football transformed into a desire to lead and motivate others to be the best version of themselves.
The path to success was not easy for Coach Dom. When he graduated from Bridgeton High School in 2008, he had zero scholarship offers and very little interest from college coaches. That didn't stop him. He found his way to Milford Academy, a post-secondary school for football players who weren't recruited in high school or those who lacked the GPA or SAT scores to attend a four-year university. While at Milford Academy, Dom worked extremely hard to position himself as a leader at the school which awarded him a partial scholarship to attend Wagner College.
In his first season at Wagner, he won the starting running back position as a true freshman. In the following season, as a sophomore, he gained the coaches respect and was offered a full scholarship.
