TBT: Ben Williams

Posted: June 26, 2014 in Football, Fun

At 5’7″ Ben Williams was one of the shortest guys on the field from 2005 to 2008, but with over 1000 career yards rushing, 15 touchdowns, and a lasting reputation as tough pass blocker, Williams was a fun player to watch. I remember walking between Cooper Hall and the College of Education one afternoon and walked right past Williams. I couldn’t get over how short he was (they list him at 5’7″ but that couldn’t be true) but his arms where bigger than my torso! I miss him always emerging from the pile and getting the tough touchdowns and cracking a more blitz linebacker that thought they could get past him. Good times.
