Will Demps (1979- ), “Pretty Will”, is an American football player and model. He played defence for the Baltimore Ravens (2002-2005), New York Giants (2006) and Houston Texans (2007-2008). Before that he played for San Diego State. He is the older brother of Marcus Demps of the Detroit Lions. He was LeToya Luckett’s love interest in her music video “Torn” (2006).
He is Blasian: his father is black, his mother, Korean. An air force brat, he lived on Mather Air Force Base in Sacramento, California as a boy and during high school near Edwards Air Force Base north of Los Angeles.
Growing up many people did not know what to make of him since he was part black and part Korean. He worked that to his advantage to make himself stand out.
As a boy he followed the San Francisco 49ers. He was a fan of Ronnie Lott.
After high school and again after university no one picked him to play for their football team despite his talent. But he did not let that stop him: he went to San Diego State and got on the team anyway. Likewise after San Diego he was later able to join the Ravens.
He was one of San Diego State’s best players: he made the All-Mountain West Conference first-team twice. Once when San Diego played against Wyoming he intercepted the ball and ran 73 yards to score a touchdown.
Actress Tichina Arnold, one of his fans, knows him. She says he is very down-to-earth. He certainly presents himself as a humble, Christian man who trusts in God – not just when times are uncertain, as they often have been, but even when success brought its own challenges.
When he was a football player making over $2 million a year women threw themselves at him:
I’ve had my share of fun with these types. I’ve flown beautiful women with agendas to big games . . . I’ve wined and dined them at the fanciest restaurants knowing I could’ve shared my bed with three at a time. They hang in packs like vultures . . . posed with breasts spilling out of their shirts . . . In the end, I know these women can never fulfill a need beyond my libido.
He called them Breezies: they are so fine even the wind around them stops. But they are all utter gold-diggers, none of them wife material. They are hoping to have a baby by him so they can receive fat child support payments for years to come. In his early days he went for them but later he avoided them:
In my heart, I know God wants better for me. After years in the league, I realized that my behavior and mind-set were just as flawed as the groupies’ I encountered. In our search for happiness and security, we wound up playing each other.
He is still looking for Mrs Will Demps:
Every woman that you meet, treat her like a queen because she might just turn out to be your wife.
