Curtis Williams passed away this morning of apparent liver failure. He was just 24 years old.
Williams had returned to Husky Stadium on Saturday, April 27th, to witness the Husky Spring game. It was the first time he had returned since being paralyzed in a game at Stanford during the 2000 football season. He was in town for a benefit dinner that raised $30,000 for the Curtis Williams fund. "I've been lucky. I'm thankful for the support of the city and the school," said Williams at the fundraiser.
His injury occurred in a helmet to helmet hit on Stanford runningback Kerry Carter near the goal line.
Dawgman.com spoke with brother David Williams this morning. He said, "Hopefully Curtis will have the use of his arms and legs where he is now."
Our heartfelt prayers go out to the family and friends of Curtis Williams. He was a great Husky and he will always be remembered.
