Ricky Williams (Texas)
During his time at the University of Texas, running back Ricky Williams became known as the “Texas Tornado.” Williams holds or shares 20 NCAA records, and became the NCAA Division I-A career rushing leader in 1998 with 6,279 yards (broken one year later by University of Wisconsin’s Ron Dayne). He rushed for 200 or more yards in twelve different games (an NCAA record he shares with Dayne and USC’s Marcus Allen). Williams won the 64th Heisman Trophy, joining Earl Campbell as the only other Longhorn player to win this honor. He was then selected by the New Orleans Saints with the #5 pick in the 1999 NFL Draft.
After a rollercoaster career, Williams retired after the 2011 season and is now an analyst for ESPN’s Longhorn Network. Williams is reportedly the father of seven children. Three of these children are by his longtime girlfriend turned wife, Kristin Barnes, whom he married on September 4, 2009. Williams is also a qualified yoga instructor.
