William Perry, or Refrigerator, was born in 1962 in Aiken, South Carolina. William was a large kind and often had to endure being teased and made fun of by other kinds but he was good at sports and chose to pursue this path. While still in high school he proved to be an exceptional athlete. He had achieved great results in high diving and running and he also could perform a 360-degree dunk. Based on his athletic accomplishments in 1981 he received a full scholarship to attend Clemson University and naturally played football for the university team. In his first year he played with team in the National Championship and two years later, in 1983, became recognized as a First-Team All American.

The Refrigerator’s professional career as well as accumulation of his net worth began in 1985 when he was drafted by the Chicago Bears. Perry was selected during the first draft of the National Football League draft. Coach Mike Ditka was the person who chose William and got him involved in an ongoing confrontation between Ditka and defensive coordinator Buddy Ryan. Ryan did not agree that Perry was a good choice and refused to play him, while Ditka managed to get William be used as a fullback.

Amid disagreements between the coach and defensive coordinator, The Refrigerator became a favorite player among the Chicago Bears fans. William Perry also made himself famous for the size of his ring. While the average male ring size is 10 to 12, Perry’s ring size is 25 and that is the largest ring size recorded among football players in the history of Super Bowl.

During the 10 years of his professional career William Perry played 138 games which helped him earn his net worth. He officially retired in 1996 after a less than successful season with the London Monarchs of the World League of American Football.

Even though most of Perry’s fame as well as his net worth come from playing football, he is also known to have tried his hand at music and business, and with more remarkable results – at acting. While he made a guest appearance in the 1980’s TV show ‘The A-team’ and starred in a commercial, Perry achieved more remarkable results when he decided to pursue acting career after retiring from professional football. His biggest role so far was in 2003 Comedy Central’s movie called ‘Windy City Heat’. William also appeared in ‘Wreslemania 2’ and ‘Wrestlemania 22’.
