Utah State QB Chooses to Forgo His Final Season to Become a Different Kind of Hero

Chris Queen : Dec 1, 2023  PJ Media

"It's always been in my heart my entire life. My mom was Army. My grandparents were Army and Navy. People in the military are always what I want to emulate because they're some of the best people, best teams on the planet." -Levi Williams

Usually, when a player makes that sort of announcement, it's because he has chosen to declare for the NFL draft. Not Williams—he's leaving college football for something much more inspiring.

The Athletic reports that Williams has chosen to become a Navy SEAL. It's a dream that Williams has harbored ever since he heard a Navy chaplain speak at a Fellowship of Christian Athletes event... Subscribe for free to Breaking Christian News here
