Williams signed with the Denver Broncos in 2014, but on August 1, 2015 he torn the Achilles tendon in his left leg and announced that he would miss the entire 2015 season.
Former defensive tackle Kyle Williams will be inducted into the Louisiana Sports Hall of Fame in June 2022. The Class of 2022 will be anchored at the Hall of Fame home in Natchitoches on Saturday, June 25 for the culmination of the 63rd Louisiana Sports Hall of Fame Induction Celebration, June 23-25.
Each Hall of Fame class must consist of four to seven players. Every retired NFL player must wait a mandatory five years before being eligible to receive votes. With Randy Moss coming out of retirement this year, the clock won’t start again until after he’s hung up his shoes for the second time.
A longtime Hall of Famer inductee said bluntly, “No. He’s not a Hall of Famer. ”
Bennett was a prolific basketball and baseball player during his high school career. Bennett was an all-state performer for the football team in his senior year, mustering over 1,000 yards in 101 rushes. Bennett was nicknamed “Biscuit” by friends because he always had room for one more.
55: Derrick Thomas
While it’s worth noting that Alabama has never officially retired a number, the number “55” comes pretty close. Derrick Thomas broke many records in Alabama from 1986 to 1988. In fact, Thomas had 27 sacks in the 1988 season.
