This is the reason kickers and punters from across the country make the trip to Southwest Ohio to learn from Tim Williams. This is his story.

At that time Tim held the Ohio State records for career field goals (49) along with two that are still in tact today. His career P.A.T. percentage (99%) and consecutive P.A.T.'s (86) are marks still standing. Tim was also selected to The Ohio State All Century Football Team.
