University of Arkansas tight end D.J. Williams was named to the 16th annual SEC Football Community Service Team, which recognizes the superior community service efforts of the league’s student-athletes.

The Community Service Team consists of one student-athlete from each SEC school, nominated by the institution’s personnel, who has devoted himself to community service.

From participation in the Big Brothers and Big Sisters program, to the local Boys & Girls Clubs and Children’s hospital, Williams has demonstrated he has a big heart and a passion for giving back to his community. He has used his stature as a prominent college football player to raise awareness and inspire others to abandon troubled relationships and seek help. Additionally, Williams has been involved in Lift Up America “Feeding the Hungry”, the Book Hogs Read to Win program, Thanksgiving Dinner at Homestyle Assisted Living Center, the Sweat Hogs program and was active in Razorback Relief: Operation Haiti at the Randal Tyson Indoor Track Center in which the Northwest Arkansas community packaged a record of more than 1.4 million meals for the starving population of Haiti still suffering from the earthquake.

In addition, Williams spoke to 1,200 elementary children at Bud Walton Arena as part of the Red Ribbon Rally during drug awareness week last month.

The senior from Little Rock, Arkansas, was presented with the Disney Spirit Award, given to college football’s most inspirational figure.
