He Proves Mom Will Take One for Team

From the Morning Briefing in the Los Angeles Times

University of Miami linebacker D.J. Williams recently told the South Florida Sun-Sentinel that when he was a sophomore at Concord De La Salle High, he had to complete a questionnaire that included the query: “What would you do if your mother was returning a kickoff?”

Williams talked his mother, Sherri Gonzalez, into putting on his uniform, kicked the ball to her and then “hit her pretty good” as a video camera rolled.

Williams then showed the tape to his coaches and earned a spot on special teams.
