Quinnen Williams Gives Back to His Hometown Police Department
Former Alabama Crimson Tide standout nose tackle Quinnen Williams returned to his hometown of Birmingham, AL on Wednesday to give back to the community by providing lunch to the Birmingham Police Department’s Investigative Bureau.
Williams kept things simple by bringing the bureau a stack of Pizza Hut pizzas and sodas before spending time hanging out with the officers.
Donating meals is a common thread amongst Williams’s philanthropic work. During the early days of the COVID-19 pandemic, Williams focused his efforts on making sure health care workers on the front lines of the pandemic in New Jersey were receiving healthy meals to keep their bodies in shape to keep up their work.
At an event organized by fellow former Crimson Tide football player Chris Rogers at Legion Field, Williams donated over 10 thousand boxes of fruits and vegetables to families in need in his hometown.
Williams cemented his place in Crimson Tide history in just two seasons by winning a College Football Playoff National Championship his redshirt freshman year and being a unanimous first team All-American player the next.
His 71 tackles and eight sacks that sophomore season were enough to make him the number three overall pick in the 2019 NFL draft. Since joining the New York Jets, he has been a consistent force on the defensive line, recording 136 tackles and 15.5 sacks in 37 starts over three seasons.
