Training and mentoring future
athletes and professionals

Building character, intelligence and talent in football and in life.

Our Story

The Battle of the Trenches Foundation (BOTF) was created to help student athletes develop into positive young men through coaching, character building, football, life skills, and mentoring. BOTF was established in 2015 by NFL Alumni Julius Williams and 2x Super Bowl Champion Anthony Smith.

BOTF creatively, and strategically combines NFL style training programs with mentoring and character-building curriculums. We seek to increase accountability, academic excellence, and athletic scholarships awarded to participants in our programs. Football provides youth with experiences and skill sets that will help them in every aspect of their lives academically and professionally. 

"we are a youth development organization focusing on life skills and character building in youth through team sports and mentoring"
