25 DAYS ‘TIL CHRISTMAS
Williams had suffered a life altering injury during a game at Stanford and was left paralyzed from the neck down afterwards.
While the Huskies were competing in the 2001 Rose Bowl game, Williams attended the game in his wheel chair in an emotional moment.
Before the game, Williams met with teammates in the locker room and he was named the fourth captain of the game. Players gestured to the press box during the game where Williams was sitting with his family!
His presence and inspiration propelled the Huskies to a 34-24 victory over the Purdue Boilermakers, while they wore his initials on their jerseys.
