Utah RB Joe Williams joined “The Big Show” on Tuesday afternoon following the Utes’ afternoon practice. Williams has a lot of expectations on his shoulders as he becomes the top running back now that Devontae Booker has moved on to play for the Denver Broncos.
Williams told Spence and Gordon (and Craig Bolerjack) that he’s always looking to score, on every play.
“I just see a clear path to the endzone and try to hit it as fast as I can,” Williams said. “I just want to get straight to the end zone, hit a home run — just do anything I can with the ball in my hands to get points on the board.”
In regards to the big shoes Booker left behind for Williams to fill, the senior says he learned a lot from Booker while he was in town.
“I’ve learned to have more patience as a running back. He could hid behind his line and then just sprint down the sideline for a long run. This year I want to separate myself as as lead back in the Pac-12.”
Utah gets set to start their season at home on Thursday, September 1 against Southern Utah.
