On the strength of his outstanding season catching passes from Nick Florence, Terrance Williams (Terrence Williams) has been named an All-American by the American Football Coaches Association. According to Baylor:
Williams is Baylor's first AFCA All-American since punter Daniel Sepulveda was honored in 2006, and he joins Gerald McNeil (1983) as the only wide receivers in program history to be named AFCA All-Americans.
I didn't realize that Williams is now the Baylor career leader in all-purpose yards with 4,554 in his four years, and with two more games to play this season, he's back on pace for a 2,000 receiving year. If he were to achieve that milestone, he'd be only the second receiver in NCAA history to do so. His season totals:
|Receiving||Kickoff Returns||Punt Returns|
Maybe I'm just biased because I absolutely love TWill, but if he could reach the 2,000 yard receiving plateau and end with something like 15 TDs, he would deserve at least some Heisman consideration, right? I know the Trophy is voted on and awarded prior to the bowl games, so a portion of that performance would not yet have occurred, but it seems strange to imagine that a player with those kind of numbers could be left out entirely.
No matter what, it's been a remarkable season for Terrance and I couldn't be happier that he's getting the recognition he deserves!
