Kyle Williams to be inducted into the Louisiana Sports Hall of Fame | Bills Today


Another accolade for one of the best Buffalo Bills in team history.

Former defensive tackle Kyle Williams will be inducted into the Louisiana Sports Hall of Fame in June 2022.

The Class of 2022 will be enshrined Saturday, June 25, at the Hall of Fame's home in Natchitoches to culminate the 63nd Louisiana Sports Hall of Fame Induction Celebration June 23-25.

Williams, a Ruston native, played in 46 games and started 33 for LSU, earning second-team All-America honors in his senior season of 2005 before 13 NFL seasons, all in Buffalo. When he retired, regarded as one of the franchise's greatest leaders and the "heart and soul" of the Bills, Williams ranked fifth in team history in tackles (610) including a club-record 48.5 sacks by a defensive tackle. He played in 183 games, starting all but five after being a fifth-round pick in the 2006 NFL Draft. At Ruston High, where he is now the Bearcats' defensive coordinator, he was the state's Class 5A Defensive MVP as a senior.

Former NFL offensive lineman Jahri Evans will be part of the 12-person class. For more information click here.

Williams will also be honored in Western New York by the Greater Buffalo Sports Hall of Fame on October 13.
