Powerful Message from NFL & Ex-WOU Receiver Tyrell Williams

Tyrell Williams grew up about 20 miles from Western Oregon University, where he matured as a  football player and ended up signing a free-agent contract with the San Diego Chargers following the 2015 season.

After earning a roster spot and catching two passes as a rookie, he blossomed into an impact player while forming an impressive tandem with quarterback Philip Rivers. In the past four years, including the 2019 season with his new team, the Raiders, he has averaged nearly 50 receptions while totaling 22 TD catches.
