Boston College Super Running Back Andre Williams is a Doak Walker Semi-Finalist and is also is the Race for the Heisman Trophy!
THE MAX EMFINGER 2013 COLLEGE FOOTBALL NEWSLETTER WEEK #13
THE HEISMAN GETS A SUPER RUNNING BACK ANDRE WILLIAMS TO JOIN THE HEISMAN CLUB
If there was ever a game by a Running Back that led to his Invitation to the Heisman Trophy Award Ceremonies, it was two weeks ago for Boston College Running Back Andre Williams. In that Career-Best Game against North Carolina State, Williams rushed 42 times for an “Eye-Popping” 339-Yards and scored two Touchdowns in a 38-21 win over the Wolfpack.
Then he came back this past weekend and rushed for another 263-Yards against Maryland. After last week, Williams was currently leading the country in every major rushing category, including Rushing Yards with 1,810-Yards on 288 carries; Rushing Yards Average per game with 181.0 yard average; and 200-Yard Games with four. And of course, he is still leading in all of these categories.
Senior RB Williams (6-0, 230, 4.39) from Schnecksville, Pennsylvania not only runs over people for the tough yards, but he breaks tackles with his quickness and speed. In the Eagles Power-Running Offensive Game, Williams follows Pulling Guards through the hole or around the end, then barrels his 230-pound body into the hole and runs right through opposing Defensive Linemen. Then when Williams gets past the initial would-be tacklers, he squares his pads, and uses his outstanding speed and gets into the open-field for long gains or long Touchdown runs. The 2,073-Yards for 2013 account for 51% of the Eagles Total Offensive Yards for the season.
Williams leads the nation with 188.5 rushing yards per game and could become the first Boston College Heisman Trophy finalist since Doug Flutie in 1984.
Last week, the Rushers that were next in line include Junior College Transfer Kapari Bibbs of Colorado State with 1,439-Yards. If you compare this 51% to other well-known Running Backs at other powerful programs, you can see why Williams is so significantly better than the others, including Bishop Sankey at Washington with 27%; Ka’Deem Carey at Arizona with 30%; Ameer Abdullah at Nebraska with 30%; and Melvin Gordon at Wisconsin with 24%. Those four players also rank in the Top 10 in the NCAA in rushing.
Now if you consider that every team that plays the Eagles are preparing a Defensive Plan to either Double-Team or put a Spy on him to go everywhere that he goes. These plans are specifically designed to keep Williams from rushing for 200-Yards and controlling the game or 300-Yards to completely dominate the game as he has done in the last three weeks.
Despite facing Eight and Nine-Men in the Box for the last three Weeks, this is the third straight week that Williams has run for “Mind-Boggling” Yards. Remember he rushed for 295-Yards two weeks ago against New Mexico State. In the last three weeks, Williams has run for a combined 897-Yards and four touchdowns, setting the Boston College School and ACC Single-Game Records with 295-Yards against the Aggies and 339-Yards against the Wolfpack.
“As the game wears on, the Defense know that we are a physical Power-Running Offensive Team and they like to load up the box, but they don’t want to line up against us again and again, because it’s not like we’re running different things,” said Williams. “They know what’s coming, but our Offensive Line is able to toss people around in the third and fourth quarter, and we use that to our advantage!”
So where has Andre Williams been for the last three years?
Coach Bud Foster is the Defensive Coordinator of Virginia Tech and he was watching film on Boston College a few weeks ago in preparing to play the Eagles and he saw Williams run over defenders time and time again. “Where has this guy been for the last couple years?”
Of all the Heisman Trophy Finalists in the race this year, none of them have had less hype and publicity than Williams and even Florida State Freshman Quarterback, Famous Jameis Winston, who at the start of the season, had yet to play a collegiate football game still was being billed as a contender in preseason publicity.
The real Andre Williams Story is pretty amazing. Through his first three years, Williams never established himself as a solid or spectacular back. Williams never ran for more than 584-Yards and he never scored more than Four Touchdowns in a season. Williams had fumbling issues early in his career, and he suffered nagging injuries, but in the first spring practice, he was running guys over and nobody could tackle him.
When strength and conditioning coach Frank Piraino first saw Williams walk into his weight room, he assumed the player was a Middle Linebacker or a Fullback. Then Piraino saw Williams run for the first time in practice and asked: “If he’s the Running Back, why is he still playing at Boston College? This guy should be long gone to the NFL if he’s that big and can run like that.”
Piraino coached at Florida from 2005-10, during Coach Urban Meyer days. He has seen plenty of Super Weight Room Freaks, but what impressed him most about Williams was his legs, which are so massive that he has to buy pants with a size 38 waist instead of size 36, so he can pull them up over his massive thighs.
THE SUPER 450 YARD QUARTERBACK CLUB
1. QB Brett Smith – Wyoming – Smith was Sensational on Saturday as he passed for 498-Yards and Seven Touchdowns. Smith also rushed for another 142-Yards and a Touchdown, giving him a “Mind-Boggling” 640-Yards of Total Offense and he was named the Mountain West Conference Offensive Player of the Week, after setting a new Mountain West and University of Wyoming single-game record for total offense in a 59-56 Overtime victory against Hawaii. This gave Smith the second such honor this year and the seventh of his career. Smith shares the Mountain West Honor this week with Fresno State Senior Quarterback Derek Carr, who set a Mountain West record for passing yards, with 529-Yards Passing against New Mexico.
The 640-Yards marked the most yards by a single player in the NCAA this season, and set a new Mountain West Conference and Wyoming single-game record. The previous NCAA high this season was Garrett Gilbert of SMU with 635-Yards against Temple. The previous Mountain West record was 570-Yards by Carr against San Diego State in 2012.
The Seven Passing Touchdowns by Smith are also the most in the NCAA in a single game the season, tying with the Seven Touchdowns by Carr against New Mexico. The previous high was six passing touchdowns by three players. The Seven Touchdowns by Smith tied him for the Mountain West single-game record with Max Hall of BYU against UCLA in 2008 and Carr against New Mexico last week. It also set a Wyoming Single-Game Record.
The Eight Touchdowns Accounted For by Smith set a Mountain West single-game record, passing Max Hall of BYU with Seven Touchdowns in 2008 and Derek Carr of Fresno State this past week. This also extended the Mountain West record by Smith to 34-straight games with at least one touchdown Accounted For.
Junior QB Smith (6-2, 208, 4.72) from Salem, Oregon led Wyoming to 793-Yards of Total Offense, which ranks #3 in the NCAA this season. Only Baylor with 872-Yards against West Virginia and Fresno State with 820-Yards against New Mexico last Saturday rank ahead of Wyoming. The 793-Yards of Total Offense ranks as the second best single-game in Mountain West history.
The 498-Yards Passing broke the Wyoming single-game record, passing Josh Wallwork with 485-Yards against Idaho in 1996. His Seven Touchdown Passes went for 72, 71, 47, 23, 20, 7, and 5 yards, and his rushing touchdown came from 51-yards. The 72-Yard and 71-Yard Touchdown made the ESPE Sweet Sixteen Plays of the Week.
Smith also became the Wyoming career leader in total offense on Saturday. He now has accounted for 10,209-Yards of Total Offense during his career with 8,672 passing and 1,537 rushing yards. Smith becomes the only player in Wyoming history to exceed 10,000-Yards in Total Offense. Smith was previously named the Mountain West Player of the Week twice as a Freshman in 2011, three times as a Sophomore in 2012 and this is his second honor in 2013.
With all of the great Quarterbacks in the Country, Brett Smith is one of the surprising leaders in the Fan-Voting for the Davey O’Brien Award that goes to the Best Quarterback in the Country.
2. QB Derek Carr – Fresno State – Carr was sensational again on Saturday as he completed an amazing 27 of 37 passes for 522-Yards and Seven Touchdowns. He also rushed for another 26-Yards, giving him 548-Yards of Total Offense as they beat New Mexico by a 69-28 score. Senior QB Carr (6-3, 220, 4.7) from Bakersfield, California is have a sensational Senior Season and he will probably be invited to the Heisman Trophy Ceremonies. In this game, Carr recorded an incredible 253.9 Quarterback Rating.
The Seven Passing Touchdowns by Derek Carr are also the most in the NCAA in a single game the season, tying with the Seven Touchdowns by Brett Smith of Wyoming against Hawaii. The previous high was six passing touchdowns by three players. The Seven Touchdowns by Carr and Smith tied them for the Mountain West single-game record with Max Hall of BYU against UCLA in 2008.
3. QB Connor Halliday – Washington State – Halliday was back to his old self on Saturday as he completed 39 of 62 passes for 488-Yards and Four Touchdowns in leading his Cougars to a 49-37 victory over Utah, which made the Cougars Bowl Eligible. Junior QB Halliday (6-4, 190, 4.8) from Spokane, Washington now has 3,905-Yards passing for the season with 26 Touchdowns.
Sophomore WR Dom Williams (6-2, 195, 4.4) was also sensational as he caught five passes from Halliday for 154-Yards and two Touchdowns for a fantastic 30.8 Yards Per Catch Average, including a beautiful 71-Yard Touchdown which made the ESPE Sweet Sixteen Plays of the Week.
4. QB Marquise Williams – North Carolina – Williams was unbelievably impressive on Saturday as he led the Tar Heels to an 80-20 victory over an outmanned Old Dominion team. In this game, Williams threw five first-half Touchdown Passes and True Freshman Slot Receiver T.J. Logan (5-11, 180, 4.3) from Greensboro Northern Guilford, North Carolina scored Four Touchdowns to help North Carolina to the record-setting 80-20 victory on Saturday.
Williams From Charlotte Mallard Creek, North Carolina completed 20 of 27 passes for 409-Yards and he also rushed for 60-Yards, giving him 469-Yards of Total Offense in helping North Carolina to a school-record 721-Yards of Total Offense. Williams also tied the North Carolina Record for Touchdown Passes and was third in single-game total yards by halftime.
The Tar Heels set all-time records for points and touchdowns by the midpoint of the third quarter, and Williams set the single-game record for Total-Yards of Offense on the Tar Heels fourth snap of the second half and by mutual agreement of the coaches, the fourth quarter was shortened from 15 minutes to 10 minutes.
“I thought he threw the ball pretty well today,” Tar Heel Head Coach and My Good Friend Larry Fedora said. “He’s taking the ball and he’s putting it where it’s supposed to go.”
The point total was the second-most in ACC History, only surpassed by the 82 points by Clemson in 1981 against Wake Forest. The North Carolina basketball team scored 82 points Saturday in a win over another Richmond, another Virginia school.
“We tried to beat the basketball score,” said Williams, who became the starter after Senior Bryn Renner was lost to injury Nov. 2. “We saw that they scored 82 and we wanted coach to let us kick a field goal so we could get 83.”
The Tar Heels became bowl-eligible with their fifth consecutive victory, their longest win streak since 2001. The Monarchs are in a transition season from the Football Championship Subdivision to Football Bowl Subdivision, are 8-4 and had their four-game win streak snapped.

SUPER SCOUT EVALUATIONS
MY TOP TEN TEAMS
1. Alabama, 2. FSU, 3. Ohio State, 4. Auburn, 5. Stanford, 6. Missouri, 7. Oklahoma State, 8. Clemson, 9. UCLA, 10. South Carolina
SUPER 200 YARD BACKS/ENDS CLUB
1. AP Tyler Lockett – Kansas State – Lockett is just a “Down-Right Super Freak” on the Football Field. The Junior All-Purpose Lockett (5-11, 175, 4.3) from Tulsa, Oklahoma is not very big, but he is very, very fast and elusive. In the game on Saturday, against Oklahoma, he was just Freaky as he recorded an “Eye-Popping” 440-Yards of Total Offense. Lockett made 12 catches for 278-Yards, including a 90-yard Touchdown Catch and he returned five kickoffs for another 162-Yards, and if my calculator is right, that makes 440-Yards of Offense. All of this was still not enough as the Sooners beat Kansas State in a 41-31 victory. His 90-Yard Touchdown Catch made the ESPE Sweet Sixteen Plays of the Week.
2. AP T.J. Logan – North Carolina – Logan is a True Freshman and I believe that his Hero has got to be Tyler Lockett of Kansas State. In the Saturday game, Logan teamed with QB Marquise Williams to help lead the Tar Heels to an 80-20 victory over an outmanned Old Dominion team. In that game, Williams threw five first-half Touchdown Passes and True Freshman Slot Receiver T.J. Logan (5-11, 180, 4.3) from Greensboro Northern Guilford, North Carolina scored Four Touchdowns to help North Carolina to the record-setting 80-20 victory on Saturday.
Logan rushed for 137-Yards, including a 63-yard Touchdown run, caught one pass for five-yards, and returned a Kickoff 99-Yards for another Touchdown, giving him 241-Yards of All-Purpose Yards. Both of his long Touchdowns made the ESPE Sweet Sixteen Plays of the Week.
3. RB Ka’Deem Carey – Arizona – Carey might get an invitation to the Heisman Trophy Ceremonies after his great performance on Saturday against Oregon. On Saturday, Carey rushed for 206-Yards and Four Touchdowns on 48 carries in the Wildcats UPSET victory over the Ducks. It was his 14th consecutive 100-yard-plus rushing game, an active streak that now is tied for longest by an BCS player over the past 10 seasons with Jerome Harrison, 2004-05. With his 48 carries, Carey has a new Arizona School Record and the most so far this season by any BCS Running Back.
Carey only had just two negative yards in the game and became the Arizona Career Rushing Leader with 3,913-Yards, breaking the Record of Trung Canidate in 1996-99. Carey also set a new school record for career touchdowns with 49, surpassing the record of Art Luppino in 1953-56.
4. RB Brennan Clay – Oklahoma – Clay had a Career-Game for the Sooners on Saturday as he rushed for a Career-High 200-Yards on 31 carries as the Sooners beat Kansas State in a 41-31 victory. The Sooners needed a big-time performance on the ground with RB Damien Williams suspended, and Clay delivered that and a whole lot more in the victory. Clay ran for 200-Yards and two touchdowns that was highlighted by a 64-Yard Touchdown in the second quarter. Clay is now #4 in the Big-12 in rushing yards with 843-Yards and has Six Touchdowns. The 64-Yard Touchdown made the ESPE Sweet Sixteen Plays of the Week.
SPECIAL PLAYERS OF THE WEEK
1. QB Keenan Reynolds – Navy – Reynolds rushed for Seven Touchdowns in the Navy Triple Overtime 58-52 Victory San Jose State on Friday night. Reynolds set an FBS record for rushing touchdowns by a quarterback in a game, a mark previously held by Dee Dowis of Air Force in 1989 and Craig Candeto of Navy in 2002. In this game, Reynolds rushed 36 times for 240-Yards and Seven Touchdowns and completed 4 of 6 passes for another 46-Yards, giving him 286-Yards of Total Offense and Eight Touchdowns.
2. QB Clint Chelf – Oklahoma State – Chelf had a sensational game against the Baylor Bears on National Television. Everyone was primed and ready to watch the Bears Quarterback Bryce Petty, who had been considered to be a Heisman Trophy Candidate before the game, but Chelf was the best Quarterback in this game as he led the Cowboys Offense to a relatively easy 49-17 victory over the previouslu undefeated Bears. In this game, Chelf completed 19 of 25 passes for 238-Yards and Three Touchdowns and completed his first 12 passes to finish with 370-Yards of Total Offense. Chelf also added a rushing Touchdown against #4 Baylor and put the Cowboys one win away from a Big 12 Championship Game and a trip to their second Fiesta Bowl in three years.
3. AP Ty Montgomery – Stanford – Montgomery was sensational again on Saturday as he accounted for five Touchdowns. In this game, where the Cardinal demolished California, Montgomery made five catches for 160-Yards and then rushed for another 31-Yards, giving him 191-Yards of Total Offense. Although Junior WR Montgomery (6-2, 215, 4.4) only made five catches, four of his catches went for Touchdowns, including Touchdown Catches of 50, 12, 72 and nine yards. The 72-Yard Touchdown made the ESPE Sweet Sixteen Plays of the Week.
4. ATH/LB/RB Myles Jack – UCLA – Jack has just had one of the most remarkable games of the year two weeks ago in a Huge 31-26 Victory over Arizona in Tucson, Arizona. The Versatile Jack had been playing Linebacker all season, but he got a chance to play on the Offensive side of the ball for the first time and he was Outstanding on both side of the Football in the Victory. On Offense, Jack rushed for 120-Yards on six carries, including a 66-Yard Touchdown Run to extend the UCLA lead late in the fourth quarter. His Rushing Total is tied for 10th on the All-Time UCLA Freshman list, while the 66-yard Touchdown Run is the fourth longest by a freshman in UCLA history.
Playing his true position at Linebacker, Jack added eight tackles, a tackle for loss, two pass breakups and a fumble recovery in the end zone as the Bruin defense held off the Wildcats for the win. “They kept telling me that they were going to put me back there on offense, but I thought they were joking,” said Jack. I just followed my blockers and everything worked out.”
DEFENSIVE PLAYERS OF THE WEEK
2013 COLLEGE FOOTBALL SPECIAL SUPER SEVEN DEFENSIVE POW PLAYERS – Week #13
College Super POW Rules
Must Win Your Game or Unless Two Teams in The Top 10 Are Playing!
1. DT Aaron Donald – Pittsburgh – Donald had a sensational game on Saturday in a 17-16 victory over Syracuse. Donald is a leading candidate for the ACC Defensive Player of the Year Award, was the catalyst in getting Pittsburgh bowl eligible with a 17-16 win over Syracuse. In that game, Donald recorded Nine Tackles, including Eight Solo Tackles and 3.5 Tackles for a Loss. He also had two Quarterback Hurries, and his Blocked PAT proved to be the difference in the 17-16 Victory. For the season, Donald has a national-best 26 tackles for loss. Donald won Walter Camp Defensive Player of the Week for his outstanding game in the Panthers 17-16 win at Syracuse. This game also earned him ESPN.com ACC Player of the Week Honors!
Pittsburgh Head Coach Paul Chryst says that Senior DT Donald (6-0, 275, 4.8) should absolutely be considered for the Heisman Trophy Award given to the top player in college football. Donald is already a finalist for several other major defensive awards. Coach Chryst also points out that Donald has better numbers than former Nebraska star DT Ndamukong Suh, who was a finalist for the 2009 Heisman. Donald leads all of college football in tackles for loss and also ranks 10th in sacks and 11th in forced fumbles. In 14 games in 2009, Suh recorded 20.5 Tackles for a Loss, for 93-Yards. In 11 games this season, Donald has 26 Tackles for a Loss for 129-Yards. Suh recorded 12 sacks and Donald, with 10 Sacks in three fewer games, could catch and surpass him.
Donald leads the nation in Tackles for a Loss (2.4 per game), is 10th in sacks (0.91) and 11th in forced fumbles (0.36). Of his 51 total tackles, more than half (26) have been behind the line of scrimmage. He is a finalist for the Bronko Nagurski Trophy and Rotary Lombardi Award. He is also a Semifinalist for the Bednarik Award, Outland Trophy Award and Lott IMPACT Trophy.
2. Oklahoma State Defensive Coordinator Glenn Spencer – Oklahoma State with Fitst Year Defensive Coordinator Spencer had the perfect plan for the Baylor Bears as they contributed 17.5 expected Points to its net scoring margin on Defense in its 49-17 win against Baylor. The Bears were averaging 61.2 points and 684.8 yards per game entering the game, but were held to 17 points and 453 yards by the Cowboys Defense. Oklahoma State is the first team to hold Baylor to a below-average offensive efficiency rating in a game in the last three seasons.
The Cowboys Defense also foiled the Heisman Trophy chances of Baylor Quarterback Bryce Petty, who had his worse game of his career. Baylor was also closing in on their first Touchdown of the Game with a Shock Linwood dive up the middle. As Linwood tried to reach the ball into the End-Zone for the Touchdown at the goal line, Junior DT James Castleman (6-2, 296, 5.0) from Amarillo, Texas swatted the football out of the hands of Linwood and into The Oklahoma State Defense and into their possession.
The game ended up being a blowout, but the crucial and key forced fumble by Castleman proved to the be a major momentum swing, leading to a seven-play, 99-yard Touchdown drive that put The Cowboys up 7-0 and it was pretty easy for the Cowboys the rest of the way. Sophomore CB Tyler Patmon (5-10, 190, 4.45) from Round Rock, Texas was also outstanding as he returned a fumble 78-Yards for a Touchdown. This fumble return made the ESPE Sweet Sixteen Plays of the Week.
3. LSU Defensive Coordinator John Chavis: With an assist from some very bad weather conditions, Coach Chavis was the Great Architect of what might have been a Heisman Trophy killer for Texas A&M Quarterback Johnny Manziel in Death Valley on Saturday. Manziel was going for back-to-back Heisman Trophy Awards, but ran into a very dominant and determined LSU Defense. Manziel might have had his worse game of his career and he only completed 16 of 41 passes with a career-low 39%completion rate for only 224-yards with two Interceptions and two Quarterback Sacks. Manziel also had only 54-yards rushing on 12 carries. Just as it was in a win at College Station last season, the biggest Key to Success for Chavis and the LSU Defense was having his Front Four focus on containment in order to limit Manziel and his improvisational magic and it certainly worked for the Tigers.
4. Miami Defense Coordinator Mark D’Onofrio – For the fourth straight game, the Hurricanes didn’t look sharp offensively, but they managed a fairly easy win over Virginia thanks to Coach D’Onofrio and a Very Stellar Hurricanes Defense. Sophomore CB Tracy Howard (5-11, 184, 4.4) returned an interception for a Touchdown and Senior DE David Gilbert (6-4, 250, 4.7) from Coral Springs, Florida raced 72-Yards for a Touchdown following a fumble recovery, as the Miami Defense finished with four takeaways in a 45-26 win. This fumble return made the ESPE Sweet Sixteen Plays of the Week.
5. Arizona Defensive Coordinator Jeff Casteel – The Wildcats were horrible on Defense a year ago, but on Saturday, they held Oregon to only 16 points, which was their lowest point total of the season. While the Ducks still gained 506-yards, Arizona time and time again, made key plays that stopped them from scoring points. No one player really stood out, but it was a great preparation by Coach Casteel and the rest of the Wildcat Defensive Coaches in a great Team Effort.
6. OLB Ryan Shazier – Ohio State – Shazier has been sensational all year and on Saturday against Indiana, he probably had his best game of the year. In that game, Junior OLB Shazier (6-2, 230, 4.52) lead the Buckeye Defense with an incredible 20 tackles, including 16 solo tackles, two tackles for a loss for a minus 15-yards, including a Quarterback Sack for a minus nine-yards; and he had two forced fumbles as they beat Indiana 42-14 in a game at Ohio State Stadium.
