In high school, William Green was named to the Rival-Net All-American Football Team, making him the top ranked running back in the USA. He played college football for Boston College University, where he was named the two-time MVP and all-time top rusher. Green was also named as the top rated running back in all college football while on the College All-American Team.
Green advanced as the number one running back on the NFL draft board, and was chosen first-round by the Cleveland Browns, with whom he won Team MVP and was runner-up for Rookie of the Year.
The greatest part about football is that it has a first half and a second half. Green had a tough first half during his initial year in the NFL, but the second half of his career was a success. He grew to become well liked and respected both on the field and in the community where he was very involved.
Today, Green is a full-time motivational speaker. He travels worldwide captivating audiences as he shares from first-hand experience that champions don’t give up, they get up.

For All Seasons
Emily Hamilton, Jeff Luckey, and Johnny Hamilton began leading worship at Biola University in 2007 with the vision to see God receive honor, glory, and praise in all seasons of life. After eight years, a name change, added band members, and three full-length albums, the band is poised to take that vision to congregations all across the country. Lead vocalist and songwriter Emily Hamilton, now married to drummer Johnny Hamilton, says what matters most to the band is that they inspire listeners to a true heart for and a lifestyle of worship.
In 2014, after several seasons leading worship for Hume Lake Christian Camps, the band decided to devote all of its time and energy to touring full time and writing and releasing songs for the church. The decision coincided with the band’s self-titled album, For All Seasons, debuting at No. 1 on the iTunes Christian/Gospel charts in late July. The band has a new single, live EP, and follow-up LP coming soon. Authenticity is what draws young and old alike to the band, their music, and their ministry, making them an instant favorite wherever they lead.
