Last season, running back Darrel Williams missed the Super Bowl with a hamstring injury.

One year later, the former John Ehret Patriot and LSU Tiger was the leading rusher for Kansas City in 38-24 win over Buffalo in the AFC championship game.

Williams had 13 carries for 52 yards, including a six yard touchdown run.

He also caught one pass, and it was a big one. It resulted in a fourth and one conversion for the Chiefs and a gain of nine yards.

Williams’ high school coach, Corey Lambert, said Darrel always had consistent speed.

Lambert said that Williams now runs a consistent 4.5 forty yard dash.

Williams competed at LSU for time with Derrius Guice and the Bucs’ Leonard Fournette. Now, he and Fournette will oppose each other in the Super Bowl, February 7th in Tampa.

Lambert said he told Williams to stay at LSU.

Williams was signed by the Chiefs as an undrafted free agent.
