From high school to college to the pros, Marquez White's life has revolved around football.

"I just love playing the game," said White. "I love football. It did a lot for me and for my family. Something I hold near and dear."

The Dothan native has spent time in the NFL, AAF, and the XFL, but with the sports world on hiatus, White's trading in the pads for an apron.

White recently opened up his own food truck in the circle city called Mealz on Wheelz. Something he's always been interested in doing.

"Food has always been a passion of mine," said White. "This is something that keeps me going. I'm a person that's based off structure. Just coming out and building my business is really big for me. Just getting the opportunity to do that."

In under a week, Mealz on Wheelz has turned into a huge success.

We've sold out each day," said White. "Our hours are from 11-5. We haven't been able to make it to 2:00 p.m. as far as food with all the orders we've been getting."

That's in large part to White's specialty.

"Definitely the wings," said White. "I put a little extra love into the wings every now and then."

White says the goal for him is to eventually get back on the football field, but for the time being, he's content tackling these orders instead of quarterbacks.

Mealz on Wheelz is located in front of the Piggly Wiggly on Montgomery Highway. It's open Tuesday-Saturday from 11 a.m. to 5 p.m.
