All the players and coaches involved in the University of Minnesota football team's 2019 season deserve credit for its historic finish. But cornerback Chris Williamson, then a fifth-year senior who transferred to Minnesota from Florida in 2017, went the extra mile.

The Golden Gophers won their first nine games of the year en route to a 10th place ranking in the final AP Poll of the season, their first ranked finish since 2003, and highest finish since 1962.

During the season, Williamson found his footing as a budding young defensive back whom the Giants would go on to draft in the seventh round with the 247th overall pick this year.

In two seasons for the Golden Gophers, Williamson appeared in 23 games and recorded 90 total tackles, 7.5 takes for a loss. He also posted 3.5 sacks, seven passes defended one forced fumble, and even returned an interception for a touchdown.

Go Gophers!!
