Overview

Timothy Felton is passionate about youth and sports, which reflects in his productive career. Timothy has a unique, humorous style of approach that relates to all youth no matter what environment they are from. Timothy provides hands on, down to earth teachings that meet youth on their level. From low ACT scores to graduating from college and more, Timothy Felton inspires and motivates youth of all ages, academically, athletically and personally. Born and raised in the inner-city of St. Louis, Missouri, Timothy played high school football at Charles Sumner High School, the first predominantly Black high school west of the Mississippi. A former student-athlete, Timothy spent most of his career as a juvenile officer and now spends his time as a GED case manager and high school football and track coach. Timothy provides consultation to parents concerning high school eligibility and gives advice on the recruiting process for student-athletes. His new book The Undrafted is his journey through athletics and life after. Timothy escaped the deadly St. Louis streets and personal struggles and ultimately graduated from Southeast Missouri State University with a B.S. in Criminal Justice, participated in Pro-Day workouts with NFL teams and is currently a graduate student and future PhD student.
