Former Syracuse players Wayne Williams and Ashton Broyld have found homes at UWG

Former Syracuse players Wayne Williams and Ashton Broyld are contributing for a division two school.

Both defensive tackle Wayne Williams and wide receiver/h-back Ashton Broyld were dismissed from the Syracuse football program during the offseason for unspecified violation of team rules. Both were set to enter their senior season in 2015. 

CuseNation.com reported last month that Williams had found a home at Division II West Georgia after he posted a picture of his locker on Facebook, complete with name plate, helmet and jersey. 


During Thursday's game week press conference, Orange head coach Scott Shafer confirmed the news and added another nugget. Broyld is playing for the West Georgia Wolves as well. Shafer added that both are contributing.

The Wolves have played five games thus far this season. According to their official site, Broyld has accumulated three catches for 25-yards without a touchdown, playing in four of the five games. He has also thrown an incomplete pass. Williams has played in two games and has six total tackles with a fumble recovery. 

"I'm happy to see those guys are still playing football," Shafer said.
