About The Club

 The Running Back Club was founded by Coach Tarence S. Williams, who is a former All-ACC Running Back at Wake Forest University (1999-2002). Coach Tarence was a candidate for the Doak Walker Award, which is the most prestigious award presented to a collegiate Running Back. In 1999 He arrived at Wake Forest & played under Coach Jim Caldwell & Staff. The seventeen year old had impressed the coaches to the point that He was promoted to play as a True Freshman, which was rare during that era.

Coach Tarence started the next year as a True Sophomore. He also started at the Running Back position for the next two seasons to follow for the Demon Deacons. He averaged 4.5 yards per carry & ended his career with nearly 2600 rushing yards & 22 touchdowns, placing him fourth on the All Time Rushing List. In 2017 He was inducted into the E.A. Laney High School Athletic Hall of Fame (along with the G.O.A.T. Michael Jordan who also attended E.A. Laney High School ).

After a career ending injury during a bowl game in his senior season, He graduated then decided to return to his hometown - Wilmington, North Carolina (where The Running Back Club was established). He had been so focused on pursuing a career in the NFL, that he knew he had to find a way to still live out his passion for football (and his role as a Running Back). Coach Tarence’s philosophy is “We work the basics, really well, then translate our trainings to the game.” His training style focuses on Cut Development, Route Development, Cleat Control, Ball Security, Blocking, Technical Footwork Patterns, Elusiveness, Y.A.C. Vision, Speed & Agility. His unique approach to training Running Backs & other Athletes has earned the attention of many NFL, Collegiate & High School Athletes across the world. 

Inspired by The Running Back position, Coach Tarence created a Club solely focused on representing all Running Backs of the past, present and future.
