Tribe in the Pros: A Running List

Ladies and gentlemen, we give you W&M basketball legend, Marcus Thornton.

As one might imagine, with W&M’s storied history dating back to 1693, the school has churned out an incredible amount of professional athletes throughout the decades (and centuries, for that matter). 

With that in mind, we at the W&M Sports Blog were inspired to compile (and continually update) a list of William & Mary Tribe athletes, coaches, and select executives currently doing it big at the professional level — specifically in Football and Men’s Basketball.

Yes, we will make sure that this list is displayed on our website on a continual basis over the coming years; specifically, we’ll keep it in the “Search & Additional Info” section on the top-right of this website under the “Can’t Get Enough” section.

And we want your help too! If there’s a W&M alum who is now a notable pro athlete or coach we missed (we’re sure there are more!), either mention the person in a comment on social media, or comment on this article below! 

LET’S GO TRIBE.

  1. Great work ! Love the pix – I believe Michael Clemons is the General Manager of the Toronto Argonauts at present – he has had several roles with the team.

  2. Would be great to have the same list for folks who previously played in the pros – more of a historical list – unless you already have one!
