Number Association Countdown – #10 – Blake Williamson

Blake Williamson came into his redshirt freshman season in 1992 season as a backup to senior Wright Mitchell.  Mitchell started the first four games, all losses, then gave way to Williamson, who then gave way to some long-haired Yankee that re-wrote half the Carolina record book.

Williamson still saw a considerable amount of action even after Taneyhill took over, mostly in red zone situations.  He scored a critical late TD against Vanderbilt in 1992, but will mostly be remembered for a little piece of razzle dazzle on a soggy night in Baton Rouge in 1994 when he took a throwback pass for a touchdown in that victory.  (See “Trickery against LSU” clip; hat tip to Cockytalk.)
