The Reese’s Senior Bowl will welcome three new members into its Hall of Fame on Wednesday night, including former LSU and current Buffalo Bills defensive tackle Kyle Williams, per an announcement from the Senior Bowl.

Former Alabama and San Diego Chargers linebacker Woodrow Lowe and former Auburn and Kansas City Chiefs fullback Tony Richardson will also be honored at the ceremony in Mobile, AL.

“Kyle is one of those special players that just understands what it takes to be successful regardless of circumstance,” said Senior Bowl president Phil Savage. “He was highly respected at LSU and everyone in the league recognizes him as one of the top defensive linemen in the NFL.”

“I am honored knowing all the great players that have participated in the game,” Williams said. “To be elected to its Hall of Fame is a great honor.”

The former LSU Tiger played for both Nick Saban and Les Miles in Baton Rouge, capturing a national title with the Tigers in 2003.

Though he was an All-American his senior season, he was thought to be too small and not athletic enough to play at the next level. He was selected in the fifth round of the 2006 NFL Draft and has spent the past nine seasons proving his doubters wrong. He has been selected to four Pro Bowls in his nine seasons, and has been named an All-Pro three times.

He has racked up 34.5 sacks in his career, the most in club history for a defensive tackle, and anchors one of the top lines in the NFL.
