DeAngelo Keeps Doing it in Conference USA

For the 4-years the University of Memphis had DeAngelo Williams in its' backfield, the former Wynne, Arkansas Yellowjacket was good as gold...

Now that he's off to the NFL, he's still good as gold to Conference USA.

Williams is named as the Leagues' Co-Male Athlete of the Year for 2005-2006.

He shares the honor with Houston Baseball standout Brad Lincoln, who was taken 4th in the Major League Draft.

A consensus All-American, DeAngelo finished his collegiate career as the most decorated player in U of M Football History.

The Tigers went to 3-straight Bowl games, a first for the program.

Williams won 3-straight C-USA Offensive Player of the Year awards, and capped his senior season by leading the Nation in rushing at more than 178-yards per game.

DeAngelo says 'I don't know how much P.T (playing time) I'll get. If I get any I'll be happy. I just want to be productive and hopefully we can make a Superbowl run.'

Williams' fans expect DeAngelo to run a lot as a Panther.

On his website, DeAngelo Williams.org, the fan poll picks Williams to rush for between 500 and 15-hundred yards in his rookie season.
