The 1990 Butkus Award winner as the nation’s top linebacker, Alfred Williams led the Colorado Buffaloes to the 1990 National Championship. A two-time Big Eight Defensive Player of the Year, Williams set the Colorado record for career sacks (35). A 1990 unanimous first-team All-America, he was a two-time All-Big Eight selection. During his time in Boulder, the Buffs won two Big Eight Championships and played in two Orange Bowls. In a 1989 vote to name the all-time Colorado team, Williams was named as an honorable mention member despite the fact that he had yet to complete his career. As the first round selection of the Cincinnati Bengals in 1990, Williams spent nine seasons in the NFL and was named an All-Pro in 1996. He won two Super Bowl rings with the Denver Broncos. He later co-founded a communications data center, and became a radio celebrity. He has been a board member for the American Red Cross and volunteered as a youth football coach. Colorado retired Williams’ No. 94 jersey in 1992, and he was a member of the 2008 CU Athletic Hall of Fame Class.
