Williams is one of only 26 NFL running backs to rush for over 10,000 yards, and had five 1,000-yard seasons as a pro. All in all an excellent career -- but it is his time on the 40 Acres that matters most of all.
Of course I have always wished the best for former Longhorns in the NFL, but how they perform in the pros has meant next to nothing for me as far as how I remember them.
Ricky's contribution to Texas reaches far beyond his record-setting rushing totals, (6,279) touchdowns (75) or 100-+ yard rushing games (28).
Ricky ran to the beat of his own drummer, and he always gave a maximum effort. He was the foundation that Mack Brown built his program on.
Ricky, Thanks For the Memories.
