Rice Institute Owls football player James "Froggie" Williams
Black and white photograph of Rice Institute Owls football player James "Froggie" Williams, class of 1950, accompanied by text headlining his achievement and entry into the Rice Athletic Hall of Fame. James “Froggie” Williams (1950) also is in the National Football Foundation Hall of Fame won during a brilliant career as an Owl end climaxed with consensus All-American honors in 1949. A rare four-year varsity letterman, he played on the great 1946 co-champion Orange Bowl team as a freshman, in 1947, 1948 and as tri-captain on the 1949 SWC title club and Cotton Bowl champs. He was an all-state high school star at Waco before Rice. “Froggie” won Rice hearts by kicking the last-minute field goal that beat Texas in 1949 and led to Rice’s most successful grid season ever, a 10-1 record and fifth in national ranking. Williams now is a successful businessman, living in Fort Worth.
