NFL NETWORK’S A FOOTBALL LIFE PROFILES RICKY WILLIAMS IN HIS OWN WORDS

‘Ricky Williams: A Football Life’ Premieres Friday, October 31 at 9:00 PM ET on NFL Network

“I decide what it’s like for me, not other people. You can be whatever you’d like to be. You just have to choose it.” – Ricky Williams

The image of who Ricky Williams is varies for different people and places.

For the state of Texas and fans of the University of Texas, the image is of a Heisman Trophy-winning running back who displayed legendary feats on the football field. For the city of New Orleans and Saints fans, the image is of someone who was supposed to be an icon and example of what a professional football player should be. For many football fans, the image is of someone who cared more about off the field pursuits than football, and a great player who didn’t live up to his potential.

Heisman Trophy-Winning Quarterback Doug Flutie Featured on ‘A Football Life’

“Doug turns his weakness into his strength. Being short made him great. It made him bigger than everyone else in a way.” – Ian Thomsen

The Heisman Trophy-winner first entered the spotlight when he completed a “Hail Mary” touchdown pass in a game against the University of Miami in 1984 – considered one of the greatest moments in college football history.
