Professional Football Player. For eight seasons (1970 to 1977), he played at the defensive end position in the National Football League with the Green Bay Packers. He made his initial mark on the football field at George Washington Carver High School in Texas and went on to play collegiate football at Prairie View College. Selected by the Dallas Cowboys during the 11th round of the 1969 NFL Draft, he ended up with Green Bay one year later (1970). Along with Lionel Aldridge (who played at the right defensive end position), Williams formed a formidable defensive duo. Highly-durable during the course of his career, he never missed a game from 1970 until 1976. He would total 111 career regular season games. After retiring, he served as a coach on the collegiate level and later moved to Cincinnati, where he operated a travel agency.
