Texas To Honor Ricky Williams With Statue

AUSTIN (AP) – Texas will honor former Heisman Trophy winner Ricky Williams with a statue at the football stadium that be unveiled at the Longhorns’ annual spring game on April 1.

The 8-foot, 1,000-pound bronze figure will stand next to a statue of Earl Campbell, another former Texas Heisman winner.

Williams won the Heisman in 1998 and finished his Longhorns career as the NCAA career rushing leader. He recently retired from the NFL. Texas retired William’s No. 34 jersey in 2000.

Cleveland artist David Demming, who taught at Texas for 26 years, was commissioned to design the Williams statue in 2010.
