The best Pooka Williams highlight on Youtube
Multiple highlights of Anthony "Pooka" Williams running around through and even over defenders during his record-breaking career for Hahnville High in Louisiana light up Youtube. My favorite is shown in this Tweet:
Colleges have been known to circulate bobble head dolls and other promotional materials to try to generate Heisman Trophy support for start players. If Pooka ever develops into that caliber a running back, KU might want to distribute a mini-statue that has the player in midair executing a stiff-leg move instead of standing on one foot delivering a stiff arm.
Pooka showed up at David Beaty's weekly "Hawk Talk" radio show at Johnny's West on Monday night, but in keeping with Beaty's policy of not allowing freshmen to do interviews, he was not put on the air.
In this video from Nola.com, Williams explains why he chose Kansas. Asked if he could change the school's losing football culture, he said: "Of course. Of course. Of course I can. I mean, if I put my mind to it, we play as a team, we're going to change it."
He's 1 for 1 so afar and Kansas is favored by a field goal against Saturday's opponent, Rutgers, for an 11 a.m. kickoff at David Booth Kansas Memorial Stadium.
