Comments
One of the first three African Americans to play in the National Football League. His football career ended in 1926, at which time Williams was already a talent scout and producer of blues records in the Chicago area. Williams became an important producer of "race" records. He is also credited as a songwriter, although it may be that he obtained copyright credit without creative input.
