UConn's Nick Williams up for national award

UConn senior wide receiver/return specialist Nick Williams is one of four finalists for the third annual Pop Warner National College Football Award which is presented to a former Pop Warner player who has made a difference on the field, in the classroom and in the community.

Williams played Pop Warner football in Highstown, N.J., in sixth, seventh and eighth grade.

Williams is UConn’s all-time leader in return yardage (punt and kickoff) with 2,389 yards and this past week was named the Big East Special Teams Player of the Week and is expected to graduate in December.

The other finalists are Duke quarterback Sean Renfree, Miami (Fla.) running back Mike James and Michigan offensive guard Patrick Omameh.

The Pop Warner National College Football Award is presented during the annual Pop Warner Super Bowl at the ESPN Wide World of Sports Complex at Walt Disney World in Orlando, Fla. on Dec. 5
