   In 1999, a partnership was formed between NFL players, Tyrone Smith and Darnell Walker of the San Francisco 49ers. The purpose of this partnership was to create an organization, First and Goal, Inc., that would service the needs of today’s youth.  In a world full of negative influences, they hoped to create unique programs and services that would offer positive influences and role models.  Youth first look to model themselves after someone seen as respectable or successful before displaying delinquent behavior.  Impacting today’s youth with positive influences and positive role models was paramount to the founders because much of their success, not only on the field, but off the field, could be attributed to their involvement in youth programs similar to the ones that First and Goal, Inc. provides for youth today.









Everyone is capable of amazing things. It all starts within your self. You have to realize it’s your life. It’s your time to make a difference. Determination, strength, ambition, self-control and knowing you will not  and can not back down. Challenge yourself. Breakthrough the barriers that have been created. It’s not where you start in life, but where you finish.

-Tyrone Smith
