During his collegiate years he played under Doug Williams, former Washington Redskins quarterback and MVP of Super Bowl XXII. He also played under Todd Bowles,

Darrick was offered a chance to play in the Canadian Football League, but preferred to stay in the states. Darrick also played in the movie, "Friday Night Lights" as the running back for Dallas Carter during the championship game against Odessa Permian.
Darrick was inspired by his mother to establish I WORK HARDER. He is from a family of seven, himself being the youngest. He was often told, "You are too small to play any sports", but his mother believed in him. However, being a single mother, she could not afford to send him to camps to get better. It was then when Darrick realized, he had to work harder to win. He trained alone and taught himself how to get better and better each day and that brings Darrick to this point in his life.
I WORK HARDER was primarily found to provide high quality services to individuals that cannot afford the expensive camps. Darrick is proud to say, "I'm a product of the less fortunate and understands what it feels like not being able to attend camps." Therefore, Darrick wanted to focus on making camps affordable and still provide high quality training to the participants. I WORK HARDER is dedicated to providing knowledge, teaching, motivation, and coaching individuals to be better.
Darrick's Motto: Life is what you make it. You can either be prepared or start getting prepared.
