Boston College running back Andre Williams has ascended from a mediocre to the best in the nation. Going into the last week of the season Williams has amassed 2073 yards rushing.
Williams has blown away BC's all-time single season rushing record. It's only the 16th time in FBS history a player has reached the 2000 yard mark.
In a year where the Heisman talk has been all about the quarterback – I think that Williams should definitely be in consideration for the award as the Nations Top Football Player. It's almost certain that Williams will be attending the award ceremony, if not they need to change what they award is – because it won't be for the Nations Top Football Player.
With all of the events surrounding the Boston Marathon bombing, Boston College has canceled Saturday's Jay McGillis Memorial Spring Football Game and all related events as well as all home athletics events scheduled for Saturday.
The eagles Director of Athletics Brad Bates said. "Our first priority is ensuring the safety of our student-athletes, coaches and spectators. Our local law enforcement community has done a phenomenal job this past week, and we do not want our events to serve as a distraction.
My personal feeling is that athletics bring people together in times like this and show would be perpetrators of such heinous crimes that we as a people will not let fear of terrorist attack ruin the fabric of this great country based on freedom.
