A company built by a couple of athletes with bold aspirations to push gaming and training beyond the status quo.



Andrew Hawkins (Hawk) and Troy Jones each have their own unique journey that ultimately propelled them into the tech space as successful black co-founders of a budding startup. Leaning on their respective experiences as former athletes, the duo wanted to help others better understand what it takes to compete at the highest levels from an athlete first POV. Their vision manifested into the development of Pre Game Prep, a training product for NFL club coaches and players.

From there they’ve applied similar technology to build new applications geared at providing the most immersive and entertaining first person sports simulations for sports fans. The two friends and businesses partners have since secured funding from institutional and celebrity investors including LeBron James, Naomi Osaka, Drake, Maverick Carter, Jimmy Iovine and Paul Wachter to help grow and scale a first of its kind technology and sports company.

We’re disrupting the world of VR by creating the world’s most authentic and immersive gaming and training products. Founded and developed by former athletes, our technology is designed to help players and coaches unlock the ultimate strategic advantage while simultaneously allowing fans to see and experience what it’s like to be a Pro.

The NFL and StatusPRO have partnered together to develop the first of its kind NFL-licensed virtual reality (VR) simulation gaming title.



Following a 7 year NFL playing career, during which he earned a master’s degree from Columbia university, Hawk went on to consult for NBA and NFL teams in addition to sports analytics companies. He’s served as on-air talent at NFL media, Amazon Studios, ESPN, Discovery and Uninterrupted. Hawk's experience working with brands and his continuing effort to democratize the athlete experience has served him well as an entrepreneur and now co-founder of StatusPro.

Troy, a former division 1 quarterback, has previously been a star at Morgan Stanley, the NFL Players Association and Head of Business Development & Sales at Mixed River. He is a sports leader and business executive who is the brainchild behind StatusPro.








Pre Game Prep is the ultimate XR football training platform developed specifically for NFL clubs, coaches and players. Teams currently utilize Status Pro’s Pre-Game Prep to simulate practice and game reps with their players.

The platform allows players to gain a competitive edge while keeping health and safety at the forefront. Through virtual Practice Sessions and Immersive Quizzes players can stay at the top of their game during the regular and off seasons.
