Green Bay Packers running back Jamaal Williams returned to BYU this week for what have you. During that return he did some press. We already showed you his fancy-ass fanny pack, but here he is talking about his rookie year.
The part that I enjoy is where Williams is basically talking about rotting away on the bench. That he had to play special teams to even get on the field, which is the case for most young players.
“Pretty much, I was just playing special teams. So I’m on all the special teams and if I’m not getting reps at running back right now, I might as well go 100 percent and do what I can on special teams. Literally, I would just run into a dude’s face — just run into his chest — and that’s all I’m doing during the whole game. So then I just noticed… a lot of these dudes just don’t try. If you really just do effort, you’ll be fine out there.”
Let that be a lesson to you youngsters out there hanging onto the bottom of the roster.
Effort on special teams.
Because a lot of those dudes on the other side aren’t even trying.
Here’s the full interview with Williams.
