Travis Williams: Auburn Man

In yet another edition of "Visiting With The Auburn Greats" we are going to talk about Travis Williams. 

Travis Williams came to Auburn via Columbia, South Carolina. In his Auburn career, he became an All - American and an All - SEC Linebacker. The following is from the AU official site:

Coaches' All-SEC First-Team ... Associated Press All-SEC First- Team ... Played in and started all 13 games ... Has started 25 career games ... Led Auburn with 80 tackles, 58 of which were solo stops ... Finished with nine tackles for loss (-22) and two sacks (-7) ... Had two interceptions and two pass deflections ... Also forced a fumble ... Tied for third on the team with nine tackles for loss

 Williams followed his heart after football and became a musician and rap artist penning such songs as  "Get Low" and "Thinkin 'bout you". His music has a positive twist. In an interview with he stated: 

“I grew up in neighborhoods and all that, but there is so much positive you can bring from that,” Williams said. “In my music, I don’t talk about the bad. I talk about the good coming up and the struggle and how you can make it out.”

His love for Auburn was never in question. In fact it became clearly evident in his tribute to an old Auburn tradition "Tiger Walk"
