From the earliest day, Tim Hiller’s story has always consisted of three things: a boy, a ball and a dream. The boy with a ball began chasing his dream by dodging imaginary defenders in his parent’s backyard in Orrville, Ohio. The pursuit of his dream continued through the ranks and record books of the Orrville High School and Western Michigan University football programs, where Tim re-wrote the standards in virtually every major passing category. At WMU, Tim appeared in 44 games, starting in 42 of them and earning national honors including being named an Academic All-American and winning the Wuerffel Trophy, known as the Humanitarian Heisman, which honors Academic, Athletic, and Community Service achievement.
His dream culminated in the National Football League, where Tim spent time with four teams in the NFL, primarily the Indianapolis Colts. Tim has coached varsity high school football each year since his playing career concluded, including three years as the head football coach at Gull Lake High School.
Today, Tim uses the platform of his celebrated football career to serve others. A frequently requested speaker across the Midwest, Tim has a heart and passion for using his gifts and experiences to prepare student-athletes to succeed in life after the game. Tim resides in Kalamazoo, Michigan with his wife Michelle.
