BC RB Williams wins Doak Walker

12/13/2013

Andre Williams on Thursday night became the first Boston College player to capture the Doak Walker Award as the nation's outstanding running back.

Williams beat out fellow finalists Ka'Deem Carey of Arizona and Bishop Sankey of Washington.

A Heisman Trophy finalist, Williams was the first running back at the Football Bowl Subdivision level since 2008 to rush for 2,000 yards. He finished with 2,102 yards and 17 touchdowns to help the Eagles to seven wins and a bowl berth this season.

Williams also graduated from BC on Thursday.
