Texas players, coaches congratulate Ricky Williams on CFB Hall of Fame induction

New, 2 comments

With Williams in the College Football Hall of fame, a parade of former teammates and friends have come out to pay tribute to the Heisman Trophy winner.

The Texas Longhorns continue honoring Ricky Williams the week of his entry into the College Football Hall of Fame in Atlanta.

The Hall of Fame's class of 2015, which includes the Heisman Trophy winner, was inducted December 8 at the National Football Foundation awards dinner in New York. More than 150 players and 31 coaches were nominated for the hall, which was moved from South Bend, Indiana to Atlanta in 2014.

The two-time All-American won the Heisman in 1998 and broke the NCAA career rushing record before playing 11 seasons in the NFL.

Texassports.com already produced a five-part series of videos to mark the occasion. They've now added one more, where names such as Mack Brown, Ricky Brown, Charlie Strong, Wane McGarity, James Brown and Colt McCoy recount their favorite memories of Williams at Texas and wish him the best going forward.
