Having a spouse that was had literally played football almost his whole life and was a newly retired NFL player, Keschia Martin realized that not only did her husband have a passion for the game of football. But he also had a passion to help young athletes become great young men and to show them how to earn college scholarships by using their God given talents on the football field.
Wanting to live on purpose and passion, in late 2013 Keschia Martin and her God-son Derrick Jones created Players2Pros. Derrick, also an outstanding athlete, who graduated from East Carolina University, was the perfect person with the perfect experience to help Players2Pros identify the most talented student athletes in NC. Emerson having played on a high school, college and NFL level, had the coaching ability to turn those talented athletes into sought after scholarship ready prospects. Keschia, who grew up in a successful entrepreneurial household, was business savvy, creative and driven. Between the three, it was the perfect storm.
In 2014 Players2Pros worked with other local coaches and organizations. But in late 2015, they realized that God had called them to step out on their own. In the winter of 2015, Players2Pros became a breeding ground for football talent. Today we are where talent comes to turn their talent into opportunity. And where the coaches and the scouts come to find well trained athletes ready for battle on a collegiate level.
