Xavier has a passion for education and sports. In three years, Xavier graduated cum laude with a Bachelor’s Degree from Hampton University while playing collegiate football. He understands the everyday challenges NCAA student-athletes face. After hanging up his cleats at Hampton, Xavier completed his Master’s Degree at Georgetown University while working for the Washington Redskins in the Player Personnel Department.
