[2022] Washington announces inaugural members of the Husky Ring of Honor

Recommended Posts

The University of Washington football team has a storied history in CFBHC, and it is only fair to honor some of the men who molded the Husky program into what it is today.  What that in mind, the Washington Huskies are proud to announce the first two members of the Husky Ring of Honor!

 

(Note: Stats are regular season only unless noted otherwise.)

Husky Career Stats (2013): 340 carries for 1761 yards, 19 TDs.  12 receptions for 42 yards, 1 TD.

 

"The Don" only started one year in the purple and gold, but what a year it was.  Williams averaged over five yards a carry as the engine that drove the Husky offense during CFBHC's inaugural season, garnering First-Team All Pac-12 honors and parlaying that strong showing into a first-round pick of the Cleveland Browns.  He enjoyed a strong seven year career in the Pros, carrying the rock for the Browns, Pittsburgh Steelers, Tampa Bay Buccaneers, and Arizona Cardinals.  Williams still holds many Pac-12 rushing records to this day including the single game records for touchdowns and yardage, which he set by running for an unconscious 422 yards and 7 TDs against Houston.

 

After his retirement from football Williams returned to the Seattle community. Now a business owner he has several prominent ventures around the area, including the famous downtown Elephant Car Wash.

:uw: Darius Jones, FS :uw:

Husky Career Stats (2014-2017): 42 Tackles, 10 Interceptions

 

A four-year starter for the Huskies, D.J. set the tone for the Washington defense from the first day he stepped on campus as a playmaking safety with 4.29 speed giving him incredible range and versatility.  Unfortunately Passes Defensed wasn't an official state when he was playing, or we would have seen much gaudier numbers from Jones as he crushed the passes of many Pac-12 quarterbacks during his college career.  Despite somehow only garnering one Pac-12 Second Team mention during his Husky career, the professionals knew his worth and the Atlanta Falcons made him the highest-picked free safety ever, taking D.J. fourth overall in the 2018 NFLHC draft.  Jones is still playing for the Dirty Birds, and the Falcons and their fans love him.  A Pro Bowler every year of his professional career, he also has 2 All-Pro honors to his name and will certainly be a virtual lock for pro football's Hall of Fame when all is said and done.

 

:uw: :pac: :uw:

 

The induction ceremony will occur at halftime of Washington's Week 8 Homecoming game against the Arizona Wildcats.  Fortunately the Atlanta Falcons are on bye that week, so Darius Jones will be there in-person along with Don Williams.  Let's show these legends how much Husky Nation appreciates everything they've done for us!
