Official Pro Players is a global network of professional athletes from all sports, who have come together to remain socially active, socially responsible, and involved in the community. Our network is the only organization that unites current and retired athletes from all sports, both male and female. Headquartered in Atlanta, Georgia, the mission of Official Pro Players is to engage, unite, and empower the sports community.
The professional athletes who are members of Official Pro Players not only convey positive images in their respective sports, but also at the executive table and most importantly, in the community. Founded by Retired NFL Player and Philanthropist, Walt Harris, Official Pro Players offers a network of support and resources for the athlete community – such as career development, spiritual/professional consulting, and connecting our members to community.
Official Pro Players was formed by Walter (Walt) Harris, a retired NFL Pro Bowler who spent an impressive 13 years in the NFL. Walt was selected by the Chicago Bears as the 13th overall draft pick in the 1st Round of the 1996 NFL Draft. Over his 13 NFL seasons, Harris played for four different franchises, including the Chicago Bears, Indianapolis Colts, Washington Redskins, and San Francisco 49ers. He ﬁnished his professional career with 35 interceptions, 690 total tackles, 14 forced fumbles, and 12 fumble recoveries and a 2007 Pro Bowl Player nominee. Learn More By Clicking Here
