Since its inception, Sportrait has been relentless in its pursuit to bridge the gap between young athletes and their dreams of taking their game to the Next level.

To make it to the next level in sports in today’s world many times it isn’t enough to just be a great player.

There are countless variables that can make or break the future for many athletes… so rather than sitting idly by, waiting for that phone call… that recruitment letter in the mail… that visit from the school of your dreams… or that all illusive sponsorship… Act NOW and become an aggressive advocate for yourself, your child, or any athlete you see promise in.

Sometimes the difference between receiving any of the above mentioned once-in-a-lifetime opportunities and having your dreams crushed is as simple as having the proper network in place providing for your maximum exposure.

This is where Sportrait comes in…

Sportrait provides a one-of-a-kind social media platform allowing its members to create a unique profile of themselves.

This recruiting breakthrough enables users to cut through much of the ‘red-tape’ and political jockeying that has become the harsh reality in today’s sports.

We’ve seen time and time again some of the best athletes in the country fail to make it to the next level, not due to their abilities, but because they lacked “connections” (an insider that has the ‘right’ persons ear).

Sportrait has teamed up with many of the most respected people in the sports world today.

And through these relationships have gained traction among colleges… professional organizations of all sorts… and a laundry list of the best sponsors.

Relying on traditional means to reach the next level is like playing roulette – and if you’re anything like me, you don’t gamble when it comes to your future… or your child’s future.

Tony Villani and XPE Sports support Sportrait!

Tony at work!

The Sportrait Team would like to introduce Tony Villani from XPE Sports. Tony has worked with many professional athletes to prepare for the next level. We at Sportrait couldn’t be more excited at the opportunity to work alongside Tony and XPE Sports to help you “Get to the next level!”

Tony started his education at Clemson University in South Carolina and attended graduate school at The George Washington University in Washington, D.C. It was there that he received a Master’s Degree in Exercise Physiology and graduated in the top of his class. His thesis was published by The European Journal of Applied Physiology and dealt with the benefits of exhaustive interval training. During this time, he interned with NHL’s Washington Capitals and was set to help the Washington Wizards prior the NBA lockout. From Washington, D.C. Tony moved to Orlando, Florida and quickly obtained a job helping the Head Strength Coach of the Orlando Magic for a basketball season. From there, his experience led him to Boca Raton, Florida where he became the Director of Human Performance at Cris Carter’s FAST Program. While at FAST he focused on sport specific speed, agility, and strength training. He helped prepare numerous NFL Combine athletes and professional athletes from all sports for their particular needs. During the spring of 2002, Tony utilized his experiences and created XPE, Inc. while relocating to Atlanta, GA. In the fall of 2009, Tony relocated XPE Sports to South Florida.

Tony’s professional references before creating XPE included such athletes as: NFL Super Bowl Champion/ All-Pro/ Pro Bowl WR Jermaine Lewis, 2XWorld Series Champion/ Playoff MVP Craig Counsell, World Series MVP/ 2XAll¬Star/ MLB manager Bucky Dent, and tennis superstar Ivan Lendl. Now, Tony has made XPE’s references and endorsements both numerous and unmatched. To date, he has trained more than 70 World Champions or 1st Round picks. Some of these athletes have included (all below trained for at least 6 off seasons!!!):

RB Jamal Lewis – 10 Year NFL Veteran-Over 120 NFL Starts/ NFL All Decade Running Back (1 of 3) / Super Bowl Champion/ NFL Offensive MVP/ NFL Comeback Player of the Year/ 2000 Yard Rusher/ All-Pro/ Pro Bowl/ 1 Round Pick/ Over 10,000 Career Rushing Yards

WR Hines Ward – Entering 13th NFL Season -Over 160 NFL Starts/ NFL’s All Decade Wide Receiver (1 of 3)/ Super Bowl MVP/ 2XSuper Bowl Champion/ 3XAll-Pro/ 4X Pro Bowl/ Over 10,000 Career Receiving Yards and Steeler All-Time Reception and Yardage Leader

LB Takeo Spikes – Entering 13th Season-Over 160 NFL Starts/ 2XAll-Pro/ 2X Pro Bowl/ 1st Round Pick

DE Osi Umenyoria – Super Bowl Champion/ All-Pro/ 2XPro Bowl/ 6 Sacks in One NFL game

OL Wayne Gandy – 16 Year NFL Veteran-Over 200 NFL Starts/ All-Pro/ Pro Bowl/ 1st Round Pick

Each of the past few years, he has trained multiple athletes that have been drafted in the 1st Rounds of the NFL, MLB, and NBA drafts. In 2008, he trained 3 top 15 picks (Jerod Mayo-10th) that were all projected to get drafted in the 2nd to 3rd rounds before their NFL Combine performances. In 2010, he trained FIVE 1st round picks including the highest paid and drafted Safety (Eric Berry-5th) and Inside Linebacker (Rolando McClain-8th) of the decade. He has continuously put out the best performances in speed and explosion including the FASTEST PLAYER EVER (Jacoby Ford) and most EXPLOSIVE ATHLETE EVER (Gerald Sensabaugh). This led to do a SEVEN page article on his training program along with mentioning that “Villani has generated quite a buzz in recent years for his work with some of the fastest-rising talent at the Combine.”

He has trained well over 200 professional athletes in sports including but not limited to: football, baseball, basketball, soccer, lacrosse, volleyball and fitness. He has been featured on ABC, ESPN, NFL Films, SKY Network (European Fox), Raycom Sports, Comcast Sports South, CBS-Atlanta, and WPDE-Myrtle Beach and in USA Today, NFL Insider, USA Today Sports, The Sporting News,, CBS, The Atlanta Journal-Constitution, The Palm Beach Post, The Boca News, The Sun News, SCORE Atlanta, Atlanta Sports and Fitness, and the Princeton Review. His ability to train athletes to reach their fullest potential is unparalleled.
