Although the official word comes tomorrow morning in a formal press release, those loyal listeners tuning into A.W.'s afternoon drive-time radio program on FM 104.3 The Fan this afternoon heard the news first hand. Colorado AD Mike Bohn and SID Dave Plati made the announcement live on the air during Williams' show; he has indeed been named to the College Hall. Per the Statman (Plati) more than 5 million people have played college football in history but only 800 are in the Hall. The news left the normally loquacious talk-radio star speechless. What a tremendous and well-deserved honor for one of the true greats in CU football history.
Williams becomes the first member of CU's 1990 National Championship team to be elected to the Hall of Fame. Big Al remains CU's all-time leader in tackles for loss (59) and quarterback sacks (35), was a 2-time All Big 8 Defender, 2-time All American and winner of the 1990 Butkus Award. Williams will be officially recognized at the HOF festivities this December in NYC. CU plans additional festivities honoring Williams and the 20th Anniversary of the National Championship team this Fall.
Congratulations, Alfred! Thanks for the memories!
