Former Cardinal Jordan Williams prepares for NFLPA Bowl
Every year, thousands of college football players graduate from their respective universities with hopes of moving onto the next level. This includes former Ball State wide receiver Jordan Williams.
On Jan. 23, Williams and 110 other top college prospects will participate in the National Football League Players Association bowl in Carson, Calif.
The bowl was founded in 2012 and boasts its slogan as the only game "For the players, by the players."
Williams is one of seven wide receivers on the American Team roster, which is coached by Mike Holmgren, a seasoned NFL coach who led the 1996 Green Bay Packers to a win in Super Bowl XXXI.
Williams will be wearing number 88, instead of his classic number 8 he wore throughout his college career at Ball State.
During his season at Ball State, Williams grabbed 200 receptions for 2,723 yards and 24 touchdown grabs.
The NFLPA Bowl is scheduled to kick off at 6 p.m. EST on ESPN2.
