Former NFL and SU football player leading youth program in Rochester

Roland Williams

The City of Rochester is teaming up with Super Bowl champ and former Syracuse University football player Roland Williams to start the Youth Mentorship and Empowerment Program, according to our sister station WHAM.

Williams said, â??I just know how much it can affect lives and I know our young people need us now and Iâ??m going to be a part of it.â??

Through football, the year-long initiative is meant to help young men grow on and off the field.
