Williams Using Football to Give Back

WACO (June 18, 2013) -- With eight Baylor records to his name, All-American wide receiver Terrance Williams has left a pretty big legacy in central Texas.

But perhaps his biggest impact at Baylor came long after he last suited up for the Bears.

The newest member of the Dallas Cowboys, Williams returned to Waco this week to help lead a camp for children impacted by the tragedy in West.

"Now that Waco is coming closer to West, I'm going to try my best to do anything I can to help them out. Me being here is just something I really wanted to do," Williams said.

The April 17th explosion caused heavy damage to two schools, leaving many kids in West without a place to learn.

"Really just confusion kind of set in because I don't think they knew what to do and I don't think the parents knew what to tell the kids either," said parent Tim Kocian.

And CenTex Pee Wee football wanted to help with recovery efforts by giving back to the kids of West.

"it's a small part, but I think it brings a smile to them for the day and let's them know that there's a hope and a future," Centex pee wee president John Kelly said.

And when Centex Pee Wee contacted the Cowboys, the team jumped right on board.

"immediately. And then from there they just started working out the logistics, legalities and everything to put it together," Kelly said.

For the 141 kids at the camp, seeing how much *this Dallas Cowboy cares helps them move forward.

"It means a lot to us and everybody at West. I hope everybody sees it because it means a lot to us," said camper Caidn Kocian.

"Man, with the Cowboys doing this, everything they've done for the kids, I think they've turned a disaster into something special," Tim Kocian said.
