Early Life and Education
There is very little information in regards to Will’s life before his college football career, as he hasn’t mentioned anything about his family and childhood. It is likely that he played football during his youth, especially during high school which would lead to his college endeavors. After matriculating from high school, he enrolled at Clemson University.
The university is located in South Carolina and was founded in 1889. It is the second-largest university in South Carolina in terms of student population with over 23,000 students enrolled annually. There is a student to faculty ratio of 18:1 and the campus resides on 1400 acres besides Lake Hartwell. They also manage the nearby Clemson Experimental Forest which spans 17,500 acres. The location has been used for recreation, research, and education. They offer degrees in several fields such as Agriculture, Forestry, Business, and Education.
It was ranked by the US News & World Report as the 24th best among all national public universities.
College and Professional Career
During Proctor’s time at Clemson, he played with the university’s football team called the Clemson Tigers, which is a member of the NCAA Division I-A’s Atlantic Coast Conference. After completing his degree, he turned professional by joining the Canadian Football League (CFL). The league is the highest level of competition in Canadian football which consists of nine teams. They have a 21-week regular season, and a three-week divisional play-offs leading to a Grey Cup championship game.
He joined the team called the Montreal Alouettes for a season, then the Calgary Stampeders which competes as a part of the West Division. They were officially founded in 1945, and have won eight Grey Cups with their most recent win in 2018.
He was mainly a third string quarterback, and also occasionally played as a wide receiver, but only played one regular season game and two play-off games for the team, but helped win the Grey Cup in 2008. The following year, decided that he would no longer pursue football professionally, and his coach announced that he had retired from the sport.
Since then, nothing has been heard about him or his current endeavors.
Former Wife – Ainsley Earhardt
Ainsley gained a lot of attention when she moved to New York City in 2007, which marked the beginning of a long career with the Fox News Channel. Initially she didn’t really know a lot about politics, but learned quickly due to her job, and eventually became successful in the field, becoming a co-host of the show “Fox & Friends”. She also had her own segment called “Ainsley Across America”, which was a part of “Hannity”, and has been a panelist for “The Live Desk”.
She has been one of the more vocal supporters of President Trump and his administration, having done interviews with the President as well as Vice President Mike Pence. She has praised Trump for acts other journalists have condemned, and has defended Trump’s many questionable decisions after he came into office. She has also been supportive of Trump through other media outlets’ criticism of deep financial trouble the President was in during the mid to late-1980s. This promoted her to criticize the liberal media for being overly critical when it comes to Trump.

Aside from her journalism work, she has also written two children’s books, including “The Light Within Me”.
Personal Life and Social Media
For his personal life, it is known that Will married Ainsley in 2012, though he was not her first husband. She was previously married to Kevin McKinney from 2005 until ending in divorce in 2012. Her marriage to Will also ended in divorce in 2018; they have a child together. According to her, the reason for the divorce was due to Will being unfaithful. His former wife is a Christian, though it is not known if he shares the same views.
One of the reasons why there is very limited information about him is due to the lack of any online social media accounts on the major social media websites such as Facebook, Twitter and Instagram. The same cannot be said for his former wife, who is highly active on social media due to her nature of work as a journalist. On Twitter she posts photos of their daughter while also sharing some of her beliefs. She also has an Instagram account, on which she posts similar content as that on Twitter.
