“I love football and it’s so great. But I knew that, eventually, it was going to come to an end,” Williams said.
“I just want to be in a spot where I can protect this great country where we get to play football with the freedom to do that.”
“I think this is the best country in the world.”
“So I’d like to keep it that way and protect it as long as I can.”
“It’s always been in my heart my entire life. My mom was Army. My grandparents were Army and Navy,” he said.
“People in the military are always what I want to emulate, because they’re some of the best people, best teams on the planet.”
Williams joined Utah State after his third year at Wyoming and had a standout performance in the recent game, contributing to the team’s victory.
