Alfred (Al) Joris Wooten #34, Running Back Syracuse University, Philadelphia Eagles and London Monarchs

Alfred (Al) J. Wooten is known best for making things happen, his high energy and creativity. Born in Niagara Falls, N.Y., and one of 16 children of Alice and the late Samuel J. Wooten, Al has truly made an impact as an athlete, corporate executive, entrepreneur and community leader. From 1989-1993, Al was a starting fullback for the Mighty Orangemen of Syracuse University. In 1994, after graduating with a Bachelor of Science degree in retail management and a minor in general management, Al enjoyed a stint in professional sports with the Philadelphia Eagles of the National Football League and the London Monarchs of the World League of American Football. After experiencing several set backs in professional sports, Al made a decision to cross over from the gridiron to politics. From 1995-1998, he worked as a professional staff member on the United States Senate Committee on Banking, Housing and Urban Affairs where he specialized in federal housing and real estate finance policy. Al was instrumental in the development and passage of the Multi-Family Assisted Housing Reform and Affordability Act of 1997 that prevented over 15 billion dollars in FHA insured mortgages from defaulting and thousands of low-income residents from being displaced. He also assisted in the development and passage of the Homeowners Protection Act of 1998 that prevented homeowners from being charged expensive and unnecessary private mortgage insurance premiums. In addition, he spearheaded the reauthorization of the Community Development and Financial Institutions (CDFI) Fund (appropriated $225 million from 1994 – 1998).  In 1998, Al returned to Syracuse University to earn a Masters of Business Administration (MBA) in Marketing and General Management. During his first year back in Syracuse he put his skills to work serving as an economic development specialist for the Onondaga County Office of Economic Development. In this role, he developed a marketing campaign to promote the city as a “Business Class Community” and led a research study to determine how remanufactured products and waste management could lead to future business and economic development.After earning his MBA in 2000, Al was recruited to work for FedEx in Memphis, TN and became engaged in many economic opportunities in the city. Al was determined to invest in a venture that allowed him to utilize his education and passion for people. Al noticed a void in image and grooming services offered to professionals and in late 2006, decided to open a day-spa boutique combo that includes a full service hair salon, custom tailored suits, designer boutique clothing and spa services for men and woman.  AJW Clothier & Day Spa was created from concepts learned in college relating to his retail management degree and his desire to create a top-notch retail destination for people all across the country.   Currently, Al serves as a Marketing Executive in International Marketing for FedEx Corporate Services. His responsibilities include leading corporate growth strategies, business development and product development for the Asia Pacific (APAC) and Europe regions.  He has also served on the Common Table Health Alliance and The Works, Inc. Board of Directors.  Al and his wife, the former Vera C. Hilliard, reside in Lakeland, TN, and have two children, Alfred J. and Aleyla.
