Athletic Republic Athlete Named Heisman Memorial Trophy Finalist

USC Quarterback Caleb Williams and Michigan Running Back Blake Corum Earn Prestigious Recognitions

December 07, 2022 // // PARK CITY, Utah - Athletic Republic is proud to reveal that brand athlete and USC quarterback Caleb Williams has been named a finalist for the Heisman Memorial Trophy by the Heisman Committee. Williams, who has led the Trojans to an 11-2 record and the #10 national seed, will travel to New York City for the announcement of the winner, which will be televised live on ESPN on Saturday, December 10, 2022 at 8 PM ET.

In addition to being named a Heisman Trophy finalist, Williams was named a finalist for the Davey O’Brien National Quarterback Award, which is presented annually to the top quarterback in college football. Additionally, University of Michigan running back and Athletic Republic athlete Blake Corum also received position-based honors, as he was named a finalist for the Doak Walker Award, an award given to college football’s most outstanding running back each season.

“It’s obviously very exciting to see our athletes earn such honorable recognitions and be recognized for their hard work,” said Charlie Graves, Chief Executive Officer of Athletic Republic. “Our program is designed to help athletes develop their full capabilities, and seeing it come to fruition in real time with Caleb and Blake has been an unbelievable experience for all of us at Athletic Republic,” he continued. “I met Carl and Caleb Williams at a Football Camp twelve years ago – They were already training at an AR training center and the results they were realizing lead to Carl and his partners opening their Athletic Republic training center in District Heights.”

Both Caleb Williams and Blake Corum attended high school in the Washington, D.C.-Maryland-Virginia area (known as the DMV), and trained together for years, including at Athletic Republic Capitol Region in District Heights. The two standout athletes still remain close friends today, and occasionally enjoy training together in their off-season. AR Capitol Region is owned and operated by Caleb’s father Carl Williams and his partners Russ Thomas and Mark McCain, who set out to introduce a concept that would positively impact the athletic development of their children and countless other athletes in the greater Washington DC area. In addition to Williams and Corum, athletes such as Scottish track and field Olympian Nicole Yeargin and two-time NBA champion Quinn Cook have trained with AR Capitol Region.

"We've built a community for athletic development in this little District Heights hot bed.” said Carl Williams, Owner of AR Capitol Region, “More importantly the boys learned at Athletic Republic the importance of preparation and perseverance, as they developed the speed, power and agility needed to play at a higher level."
