About the Founders

 

According to most statistics, the odds were stacked against Khalif. He is the youngest of three children, raised by a hard-working single mother in Norristown, PA, a small town not far outside of Philadelphia.  Due to a considerably age difference between he and his older siblings, Khalif was doted upon by his mother, sister and brother, all who helped shape him into the man that he has become today.

Even from the early age of 5 years old, Khalif played with passion; striving only to be the best. Looking up to great players like the legendary Allen Iverson and LeBron James, Khalif consistently worked hard to perfect his craft. And it all paid off....

In 2009, Khalif and his high school teammates battled their way to securing the PIAA District One title.  This was a game where Khalif was able to really display his athletic prowess on the court.

In the first half he alone scored 19 of the 20 points placed on the board.  His teammates rallied behind him in the third and fourth quarters to bring home the championship...one that the Norristown Eagles had been chasing for 19 years!  As his senior year in high school came to a close, Khalif had made up his mind to attend Temple University and continue honing his basketball skills under well-known coach, Fran Dunphy, where in his senior year (2013), Khalif was named the Atlantic 10 and Big 5 player of the year.

Despite not being picked up in the draft, Khalif found himself being picked up by the Philadelphia 76ers in the 2014 season.  He played with the team throughout the preseason and after being cut from the team, he landed a spot overseas, playing with a great team in China. This small town guy was on his way to an international playing field...his horizons were being expanded, as were his opportunities!  While in China Khalif definitely made his mark and found himself being offered a spot on a team in Israel, Hapoel Eliat, where he played for 2 years before going to play for Hapoel Holon, where he has played for the past year. Playing on teams within Israel's top league has been a great experience where he has been able to hone his skills even further and was named Guard of the Year for 2 consecutive seasons.

Khalif is still maturing, both as a basketball player, as well as a person.  Giving back to his community is very important to him and therefore, Khalif looks forward to sponsoring different events, such as Norristown Appreciation Day and a Thanksgiving food drive and Christmas toy drive each year.  In addition to these philanthropic efforts, Khalif also is diversifying his talents and now is beginning to look into real estate investing and has founded Wyatt 1 Holdings, LLC to work with like-minded individuals who, too, are interested in this type of venture.  Overall, what Khalif has learned during his journey is that with hard work, motivation and persistence, you can bring your dreams to fruition....it's that MARATHON MINDSET that has sustained Khalif thus far and is what will fuel in the days to come.
