Matt Willams: Officially the Texas Tech kicker

| 2 Comments | No TrackBacks
The other day we introduced you to Matt Williams, the Texas Tech student who won a field-goal kicking contest during a timeout of the Red Raiders game against UMass earlier this year. In the tradition of all those movies we loved as kids, he is now the Texas Tech kicker.

Dreams can come true, kids.

Mr. Williams' right leg is getting quite a workout against the Kansas Jayhawks this afternoon. He's connected on all six of his PATs as Texas Tech is de-feathering Kansas, 42-14.

I went to high school and played with matt... He's legit. It's no surprise to anyone that he's where he is right now. It was surprising that he wasn't out of high school! Leech missed him the first time around... then got lucky.

Kyle responds: I want to play him when they make a movie about this.

have Matt contact us....we'd like to do a story on him. please respond with "lary" in the subject line....

kind regards,
