SHSU's Torrance Williams Named Southland Football Special Teams Award Winner

By  | 

Torrance Williams has been named the Southland Conference football special teams player of the week following an outstanding performance in Sam Houston’s 14-3 victory over Lamar in the Bearkats’ 2013 league opener.
The senior receiver/kick return specialist helped Sam Houston win the field possession battle with five punt returns for 138 yards in a 14-3 victory over Lamar last Saturday.
The Waco, Texas (Connally H.S.) product averaged 27.4 yards per return, including a long of 53 yards. After his fifth long return, the Cardinals booted their final three punts out-of-bounds.
He also caught two passes for 17 yards and rushed for 18 more to total 173 all-purpose yards.
Williams leads the Southland in punt returns this year (16 for 358) and his 22.4 return average ranks second nationally in the FCS.
During his four-year career, Williams has totaled 1,114 yards in pass receiving and 2,053 all-purpose yards (rushing, receiving and returns).
Williams award marks the fifth time this season for a Bearkat to earn a Southland weekly award.
Sam Houston State travels to Lake Charles, La., to take on McNeese State Saturday at 7 p.m. The showdown pairs the Southland’s top two FCS nationally ranked teams.
