In his freshman year, Rawleigh Williams’s neck was injured, badly. He fought through it, and returned to the field. In Arkansas’s most recent spring game, he was hurt again, badly. Today, he released a heartwrenching statement on Arkansas’s website, stating that he would be retiring.
One of the hardest decisions I've ever had to make, but I'll continue to live by Proverbs 3:5-6. WPS. https://t.co/cD78ATLAzX

At his peak, Williams was one of the top running backs in the SEC. As a sophomore, he ran for 1,360 yards and 12 touchdowns.
This is a pretty huge loss, to say the least. The running back out of Bishop Lynch in Dallas high school was a tough runner, and a huge part of that powerful Arkansas attack. His loss will not be easy for Bret Bielema and the Razorbacks to replace.
