Ole Miss will retire the number of the school’s first black football player

Ole Miss announced Thursday that it will retire No. 74 when the Rebels take on Mississippi State in the annual Egg Bowl on Nov. 24.

Williams was the first black player to play a football game at Ole Miss and was one of the first to be signed to a scholarship. Affectionately known as “Mr. Gentle” during his playing days, Williams becomes the fourth player in show history to have his number retired, joining Archie Manning (18), Chucky Mullins (38), and Eli Manning (10).

While at Ole Miss, Williams was a three-time All-SEC selection, a four-year letter winner, and a member of the Rebels’ Team of the Century. He still holds the program record for career sacks (37) as well as the single-season sack mark (18).
