Matt Willis is a true athlete. It’s not just because he plays wide receiver in the NFL. It’s because his athletic abilities can carry over to other fields of play. Willis recently competed on America Ninja Warrior which pits contestants not only against each other but against an extremely difficult obstacle course that tests competitors’ strength, speed, endurance, and flexibility.
Willis had the chance to compete on the show because a casting agent asked his brother-in-law to participate as a former member of the US Water Polo. When his brother-in-law turned the offer down, Willis asked if he would call the agent back and ask if there was a spot for him.
Willis completed the course, but did not have a fast enough time to move on to the next round.
