03/16/13 - 2013 Utah State Pro Day: Keep tabs on Utah State’s quick-as-a-hiccup Kerwynn Williams...Representatives from 11 NFL teams gathered at the pro day held at Utah State on March 7, where two players who participated at the NFL Scouting Combine went through a workout held indoors on FieldTurf. Philadelphia Eagles running backs coach Duce Staley and Indianapolis Colts assistant special teams coach Brant Boyer were present for the pro day.
Kerwynn Williams, RB (5-foot-8 3/4, 193 pounds) - Williams stood on his numbers from the combine (he was a top performer in his position group in the 40-yard dash and 20-yard short shuttle). Staley worked out Williams, who also caught punts and kickoffs from a Jugs machine. Williams, who is quick as a hiccup, had a spectacular performance in Utah State’s 41-15 win over Toledo in the Famous Idaho Potato Bowl. Williams rushed for 235 yards and three touchdowns in the win, displaying the electricity that could make him an interesting player to follow in the 2013 NFL Draft. - Gil Brandt, NFL.com
03/07/13 - 2013 Utah State Pro Day: Davis and Williams, who both excelled in last week’s NFL Scouting Combine, sat out all the measured tests except Davis’ vertical jump. However, both players did participate in on-field drills and felt good about their performances. “I think the workout went well,” Williams said. “There were some drills I hadn’t seen before, so I’m just trying to take what I can from these drills and keep on pushing. The punts were high and the one I missed was a short one and I should have got that one. You shouldn’t leave any balls on the ground, but I think it was a good day catching the ball.” - Utah State Football
12/15/12 - BOWL HISTORY: Utah State, who also played in the 2011 Famous Idaho Potato Bowl, losing to Ohio in the closing seconds, is appearing in back-to-back bowl games for just the third time in school history joining the 1946 Raisin Bowl and 1947 Grape Bowl teams. Also, the 1960 Sun Bowl and 1961 Gotham Bowl teams. Overall, it is Utah State's eighth bowl appearance in school history and Utah State has won just twice.
Scouting the running game: It centers around senior Kerwynn Williams, who had 1,277 yards on the ground and averaged 6.4 yards per carry. What may say the most about his attack, and the offensive line creating holes for him, was that in 200 attempts Williams only lost a total of 64 yards for the season. He set up reasonable third-down situations all season. Quarterback Chuckie Keeton is next in line, averaging 4.4 yards on 120 attempts. - The Sports Xchange
12/15/12 - PLAYERS TO WATCH: RB Kerwynn Williams ranks 11th in the nation in all-purpose yards (163.0), 23rd in rushing (106.4), and tied for 34th in the nation in scoring (8.5). One of the country's most unheralded players, this will be a nationally televised showcase to show his value. NFL scouts will be watching, for sure, especially after the rookie-year pro success two former running back teammates (Robert Turbin of Seattle, Michael Smith at Tampa Bay) are enjoying this year. And Williams even offers more versatility. - The Sports Xchange
12/15/12 - Kerwynn Williams ran for 235 yards and three touchdowns and No. 18 Utah State won a bowl game for the first time in nearly 20 years, beating Toledo 41-15 on Saturday in the Famous Idaho Potato Bowl. The victory capped the best season in Utah State history. The Aggies finished 11-2, won the Western Athletic Conference title outright and had their first bowl victory since 1993.
Chuckie Keeton scored on a 62-yard run to put Utah State up 7-3, and Williams, the game's MVP, sparked a 28-point fourth quarter for Utah State when he broke through the defense and raced 63 yards for a touchdown to put the Aggies up 20-9. Williams, who had 18 carries, followed that with TD runs of 5 and 25 yards. Keeton ran for 92 yards and was 21-of-31 passing for 229 yards.
Toledo (9-4) was able to move the ball and made five trips inside the red zone. But penalties and miscues forced the Rockets to settle for Jeremiah Detmer's three field goals. - AP Sports
