The Jeremy Williams Award at University of Memphis

Williams returned to his alma mater for the 2010 Blue-Gray Game in April, and was an honorary defensive coordinator for the game. He is the namesake of an award established this spring by head coach Larry Porter, who was a teammate of Williams. The Jeremy Williams Award will be presented every year to the spring’s Most Valuable Player who, through his actions on the field, demonstrates determination, courage and leadership every day in the same way Williams did while starting every game of his career and amassing the current record of most tackles by a defensive back.

The inaugural award, which was presented by Williams, was given to senior safety Marcus Ball.
